Hi to everyone just joined this forum and looking for a little advise from anyone. My son who is just 17 is (was) training at ATR Bassingbourn. This morning he rang me up with the devestating news that he is to be discharged today on medical grounds. As a young boy he suffered from time to time with eczema. and last night after being out on some excersise for 4 days his condition flared up again so this morning he went along to see the medic who in no certain terms told him it was contagious and he would be discharged with immediate effect!!!! and added he has wasted over Â£7000 pounds of army money!! Ever since he was a child all he ever wanted to do was serve in the army. My question is "Is there any sort of appeal he do to get himself back in?" I spoke to the local Navy careers office before and they said bring him in on tuesday we will speak with him with a veiw to entering the navy. to say he is devestated is an understatement.
