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. i was deffered in october when i applyed because i had been given some inhalers in august 2003. i still have the inhalers in a box and they were never used.

    i have had lung tests to show i dont suffer rom asthma anymore and i have above average lung function for my age and height.

    i am just wondering how to write up an appeal letter. my AFCO have been crap, they have hardly helped me and im a bit pssed off but what can you do.

    so just a little help please guys, im a fit lad train 5 times a week and play rugby at national level. so i dont suffer at all and i think i will be more than capable in the army, its just this one stumbling block.

    thanks guys
  2. I recently went on a recruiting drive, for QA's. I was asked this question, as far as the Army is concerned you have to be prescription free for three years. I hope this has been a help,
    Cheers mate and good luck...
