Being Deaf in the TA

#1
just a quick one gents and I wasnt sure where to post this but I'm due a medical for a course with the TA in the next 2 weeks, but however Ive recently begun to suffer quite badly with my ears and have been told by my GP after having a hearing test that my hearing in my left ear has been quite severly reduced in the past few months.

The big question Im posing here is whether or not the TA will likely keep me on knowing this?

I have pretty rough noise induced hearing loss, I'm supposed to wear hearing aids in both ears. I had a hearing test done by the MO and he medically downgraded me.

No more gun salutes, no deploying, no going in helicopters.

Range work still fine as long as I wear proper ear duffs.

Depends on the tour, those assessed as MLD can still deploy on Op Tosca.

Never mind the TA, I'd find out why your hearing suddenly deteriorated if I were you.

Have you considered a commission? There's no requirement to listen to anyone or anything do hearing shouldn't be an issue!!!
