Being kicked out for allergies

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. I quit my job of 3 years, rented out my house and moved down to Sandhurst in May. I however was booted out after a week for having a peanut allergy (which I disclosed at all my pre sandhurst medicals)... I am now left jobless, and without a permanent residence, not to mention all the time and effort that went into preparing and getting to Sandhurst.

    Does anyone know (1) if a peanut allergy means the armed forces are a complete no option (2) if I should be entitled to any compensation?

    You didn't serve long enough to be awarded anything more than peanuts, which won't be much use to you...

    Still, if you can shell out for a brief, why not?
