  1. i have hayfever and ive mentioned that on my medical questionaire is this a medical failure?
  2. Only if you wish to apply for the Army Pilot's Course (APC).
  3. Whats you medical history like and what are you taking now? Not to scare ya or anything but sometimes it can cause problems later in the recruitment process.

    I wont give all the boring details, but hayfever stopped me getting me a job in the RAF, based on a few repeat prescriptions of prednisolone.

    Unless youve got a quack who loves to keep you pumped full of whatever, youll honestly be fine. But if in doubt have a look at your record and see how many times youve been given steriods.

    p.s. the army didnt have issues with my hayfever.
  4. i alos have flat feet,been treated with insoles by by hospital,and its on my medical records
  5. Hayfever and flat feet? Have you got rickets as well?
  6. In which case you are prone to 'summer 'flu' :D

    Proximo sez:This is 'Joining Up (Regular)' not a free-for-all.

    Whilst I acknowledge that the concept of a compulsively sneezing flatfoot wanting to rush about Afghan poppy fields is causing a few raised eyebrows, at least he wants to do his bit.

    Apologies to Suits_U for jumping on his post.
