I realise that's a rather obtuse subject heading! Until a couple of weeks ago, I was in the last stages of getting into the reserves (RAF gunner). I had fancied the infantry, but my brother is a LE Capt. (though has just been approved by the board first time around to Maj....well done bro' &, apologies for the shameless family pride!) in the RRS and I wanted something unconnected. I'm rambling now, so to the point: The last few weeks have been a real whirlwind, the end result of which is that I have now been diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis. To say I wasn't expecting this is an understatement. From what my brother says, my chances of getting into the reserves are now screwed. I'm well pissed off about this and would appreciate any advice from someone in the know. If this is the case, are there any other avenues I could follow? I will, of course, be getting in touch with the squadron, but in the interim, and advice/knowledge is appreciated.
