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. Hey,

    I have a hereditary Joint Stability problem (Hypermobility syndrome, Hypermobility).

    Now, can anyone tell me whether I would even pass the application process with this? My joints can subluxate (shoulders, knees), etc.

    I don't think i'd be able to join up, but it would be nice if I could get in

    This applies to the TA aswell, not sure if the medical is different, I'll post this topic in the TA forum aswell if necessary.

  2. from JSP 346
    P8 = unfit for military service. so it depends on how bad it is.

    edited to add

  3. Ahem, are you quoting stuff from JSPs again?

  4. Thats me out then, damn. Get about 15 degrees in each knee.

    Thanks for replying :)
