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. My nephew has just done his barb, and scored a whopping great 48, he has expressed an interest in parachute reg, (be nice), but he is an insulin dependent diabetic, now I think the term snowball and hell springs to mind but he seems convinced he will get through the medical, anybody know the answer?
  2. You know the answer.

  3. If he has a club foot, seven fingers missing and likes electrodes then he will be fine...Always room for men in the Signals
  4. Aye unfortunately I'm almost certain that diabetes is a definite no go.

    In my last job as a warehouse picker, a guy came in who had been in the army for 2 years before developing diabetes and he got medically discharged for it.

    Really sorry. :(
  5. Just a quickie, ignore my last, wrong nephew, :0
    this one hasnt got diabetes.
