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. Right guy's (and gals),

    Just filling in my RG8 and looking through the permanently disqual conditions to find "nut and peanut allergy" is one.

    I am mildly allergic to Pistachio nuts but have had no problems eating any others including peanuts...

    Is that a total no no or is this something that could be appealed?

  2. Technically a Pistachio isnt a nut.. my mate ha s a severe peanut allergy and we all assumed he was going to die and wrestled him to the floor when he started manically eating pistachios to scare us. Barsteward.

    Anyway point is its not a nut so maybe its no problem? I cant imagine they army feeds you pistachios very often and if your allergy is mild would they really give you the boot for this? I dont know but hope not.
