Almost every joiner will be at H2 I think. Never seen H1 on anyone's PULHHEEMS but I could be wrong. H3 is a definite fail that would require a specialist medical board (it did in my case).
You won't be H1 in the Infantry for long mind!
good men, going to army in September and hoping to go infantry. don't know if it is any good right enough but hey ho. thanks anyway ladsAccording to PULHHEEMS Administrative Pamphlet 2010 (PAP10) the Entry Standard for Infantry is:
Infantry (all) (incl PARA ) P2 U2 L2 H2 H2 E8/3 E8/6 M2 S2 CP4
Which means that yes, H1 H2 will be fine.
Bloody hard when you can't hear the questions!
So are you saying that infantry ears are no longer H2 H2 and rather H1 H1
Nope. That isn't what that says. If you read the top paragraph it says "Hearing Standards profiles are to be at least H2 in each ear". The application of H1 for some Services and trades is made clear in JSP 950, but JSP 950 also makes clear that Single Service guides (such as PAP 10) should be consulted for detail. I have sent you the standards for the Infantry, which are also supported by what Bobby posted.So are you saying that infantry ears are no longer H2 H2 and rather H1 H1
Im nearly sure the 30db at 6khz and the similar things only apply to the RN. (Says it on JSP 950)
1 Not more than 45. (RN only: No single level to be more than 20dB)
Not more than 45. (RN only: Level not to be more than 30 dB at 6 kHz or 20 dB at any other frequency)
