Hello everyone, i'm a newbie here so bare with me In 4 weeks im starting at HMS raleigh (yes a sailor, i know and in my PT preperation for it I've picked up a shin splint. it's not crippling but it's certainally gonna affect my running, although i should pass all the necessary tests. However should I tell them about it now, when i arrive or not at all? Is this something i could get discharged medically for? Joining is something i REALLY want to do and my leg shouldd heal just fine. Just looking to get some info from people who are/have been part of the navy or military force! Thanks PS A seperate question just summat i'd like to know - I applied for the Army before the RN and got refused on medical grounds cos of exzema. What i have is extremely mild, but i put it on the medical form just to be honest, any idea why this is? An army Dr didnt even see me i just got told to try again in 4 years!
