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. so i'm filling in my medical form and it's asking about hay fever, I got it once about 2 years ago, and it never bothered me and i didn't have to see my GP about it. is that gonna bugger up my chances of joining up much, and how do I mention it in the best light, just be honest? hmm
  2. answer the question honestly, as you have done here

    Its not meant to trip you up

    but your history of hayfever isnt a problem
  3. was speaking to my uncle who was in the RLC about it and he said to downplay it because it could be a prob if you get it when in full NBC kit, which I can kind of understand, i think. thanks for the advice anyhow. now to get my GP to sign it all up quickly so i'm not waiting donkeys years >.<
