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

    My son has recently been accepted into junior army college at harrogate. He has been told he is likely to start in september. Last year he broke his nose and now requires this re setting ( septoplasy) Is this likely to affect his entry. What view will the medical officers take when he starts at the college. Its only a very minor surgical procedure. Any advice would be appreciated

  2. He should ask his recruiter for a definitive answer. However, provided he is fully fit by September, he should be alright. I don't think the army imposes the same restrictions on soldiers having nose jobs (sorry nose resetting) as it does on laser eye surgery etc; so he shouldn't have a problem in the long term, provided the surgery is successful.
