Is it possible to get back in after being SNLRd?

#1
Long story short I've been in basic training twice
1st time I was 16, joined as a school leaver and then DOR'd just before finishing
2nd time was at the age of 24 (last year), this one is a bit more complicated
I joined the paras but whilst in training I wanted to transfer to the Royal Anglians. I was told the best thing to do was to leave and then reapply as I'd only been there a short time
I got the impression the paras were just fucked off with me (obviously I understand why!!) for wanting to transfer that they fobbed me on with crap advice

Anyway I did come out and went straight down my local recruitment office where I was told I'm not going to be able to get back in as my service is no longer required

I know i've seriously fucked up, twice but i'm just desperate to get back in I don't know what else to do

Any advice?

Manning is nearly at 100%. It is much harder to join up at present.
Even still, is it all possible to get back in when you've been told service is no longer required??
Or is that like the final word on it?

Nah not really bollock-chops
My girlfriend and kid are in Essex so I wouldn't mind being round these parts but it ain't the actual reason for wanting to join

Yeah that's exatly what i was told at the careers office
I questioned it because I didn't think it was right. I did nothing wrong other than wanting to transfer but asking didn't get me anywhere
My local office just doesn't want to know

All I can think is, if they have dealt with your two previous attempts at joining, they dont want to be involved in your third attempt. Surely they are allowed to turn away, what they think are unsuitable candidates?

You could try a different ACIO, maybe ask if you can get in touch with MCM to find out why you had SNLR placed on your file. If it went down as you say, maybe they just decided you weren't worth it. You have taken up TWO slots that could have been used for others, and quit.

Surprised regards the Para advice.... they usually are quite good at palming off those who aren't likely to pass P Coy in to other trades/capbadges.

Yeah that's totally fair enough
1st time round I was young and made a stupid mistake, 2nd time i was just given crap advice
I didn't want to come out, i wanted to transfer but was told it's a lot of hassle and the quickest way to do it would be to come out and reapply

I'll try another office

What did the Anglians offer that The Parachute Regiment couldn't?
nah it was nothing to do with what one could offer which the other couldn't
It was just a personal choice, I was always torn between the two

Army manning nearly 100%, young people joining left right and chelsea?

Best of luck, but don't be too disappointed when they turn you away without a second thought - as has been said, twice now you've been in and left. Even if second time was down to shoddy advice, doesn't change the fact that you wasted two slots, possibly both infantry where we need men?

You've probably been considered overly risky now due to your prievious record, to be honest.

So why did you start basic with the Parachute regiment, and before finishing, decide you wanted to join The Anglians, I'd love to know how far into P Company you went before asking about transfers?
 
#17
Just over 5 months
I know I nearly finished but once I'd mentioned wanting to transfer they wanted me gone anyway, for obvious reasons

Try the TA?

You might stand more of a chance if you have actually stuck at it for a bit.

If the documentation said "SNLR" that is it: ENDEX.

What did your release documentation say? There will be a reference to AGAIs - along the lines of 9.414 sub-para ?.
