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 had sustained a fracture to the radial head in my elbow 12 months ago. I am now fully fit and back to strength. I can easily complete the BPFA, and i am looking to join an infantry unit. However i have lost the last 5 degrees of movement in my right arm so it won't fully straighten. Is this going to cause a problem at the medical for RSC?
  2. not really - a letter from your GP outlining your treatment should do, but you might get referred to the Service Orthopaedic Specialist for a conflab!

    I got in with 15 degree loss of movement in my left hip after an op 6 years before I joined up - saw the specialist, had to go to the gym and be beasted - all was OK
