  1. Hi im new to this site and im thinking of joining the rifles I was injured training to become a Royal Marine I left before i was medically discharged with compartment syndrome which im now fully recovered I have just got back from traveling around the world and now decided the rifles is the way I want to go.

    I have looked on the army website but would like some specific information as to the fittness requirements for joining the rifles.

    many thanks chenks
