Iâm currently trying to enlist in a Local TA unit , its taken an absolute age, but got as far as the medical and was due to go off on a selection weekend, but my admission to having had asthma as a child has pretty much halted the process in its tracks. But it seems crazy, as Iâm generally quite/very fit, regularly visit the gym and do some sports coaching. I havenât had an asthma attack since I was a kid, nigh on 20 years ago. Iâve been informed that this could potentially mean that I wonât be able join up, as current posting to Iraq and Afghanistan mean they canât run the risk of soldiers having an asthma attack. Needless to say Iâm gutted! Anyone aware of similar situations occurring with potential recruits ?
