    Private Bryann had been in the TA for a good few years and has done a couple of tours overseas.

    A few months ago he was diagnosed with an illness which ment he could not attempt his fitness test as per bounty requirement.

    Is it still possible for him to qualify for his bounty having not attempted his fitness test?

    Will he be fit enough to pass the test by April next year?

    His CO could sign an efficiency certificate and explain to the Bde Comd why he had done so, in the absence of a MATT2 pass.

    Will he ever recover from this illness?

  5. I have Achilles Tendonitis and had a letter from an Orthopaedic Surgeon explaining why I could'nt complete my CFT, so said Pte Bryann should be ok.
  6. Do you actually have to complete the CFT , I thought you just had to attempt it.

  7. Probably, but he might struggle with passing the test in the future.
  8. passing or taking part ? maybe I´m wrong ( our unit as always been pass or fail ) , but as of next April ,, it is a pass or fail ,, not just taking part .
  9. As long as you get a suitable biff chit, and your unit is prepared to accept you being medically downgraded, then you should be OK.

    Talk to your CoC, but be aware that if you get a specialist medical, they may ask you to leave the TA if you're properly biffed.
  10. Taking part. He's struggled to attempt before the diagnosis.
  11. Bounty???

    They sent a team of US Army Rangers behind German lines to rescue him, isn't that enough?

    Young people today, they've no gratitude!
  12. They even made it into a film!link

    Surely if you can't pass it that means your not fit for service full stop.

    If a soldier has been fit and will return to fitness its a bit of a disinsentive to say "ah ha you're sick, we don't want you!" Maybe he'll just conclude that he's got better things to do with his life than soldier for an ungrateful nation and an army that doesn't care about him!
