Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Hi, just wondering if anyone knows if I am eligible to get issued different boots if I have medical reasons e.g. achilles problems and issue assault boots do not offer enough support. If yes how do I go about getting them.

    Cheers

  2. I would imagine that you would need to have the issue certified by a doctor before you can proceed.
     
  3. Every unit is different. Bordon has a convoluted chain that involves the doctor, physio, doctor, medic, QM, PRI, QM (probably due to the amount of crow blagging)
    Current unit is simple, letter from doc, straight to RQ, boots arrive week later
     
  4. Get chit from quack/medcentre/podiatrist take to Qms get Lowas or Altberg simples!

    I ve had custom made Altbergs in past through system and now Lowa mountain boots!
