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

    I am applying for sandhurst at the mo and have just had my opticians report done to send to westbury. It turns out that i have a very slight squint in my left eye (meaning it doesn't line up properly with the other one) and was wondering if this is a problem. Does anyone know it this will prevent me from getting in to the Infantry or from getting in altogether?

  2. You will be an asset. You will be the first soldier who can solely give "all round defence".
  3. You'll be fine mate, I have the same issue with my eyes and I'm ex-army (REME) and now in the Marines. You only shoot with one eye open for testing so doesn't matter.
