I am currently applying for the reg army. I have served two years with the in the TA with PWRR. During this time my ears have takin a huge battering and my hearing has decressed by a bit and I can also hear ringing in my ears when its quiet. I have heard, the vibrations from firing the SA-80 go through your cheek bone and into your ear causing damage/trauma. True? Do the armed forces take much responsibilty for hearing damage and will this affect my application if I have some hearing issues?
