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. With increasing age and senility, and various body parts not functioning as they did when I was a lad, can anyone point me at a list of conditions which would prevent my re-engagement?

    If you have type 2 diabetes which is controlled by tablets and/or diet exercise you will be down graded to P7 while a 6 month review takes place. If your Blood sugar is ok you will go up to P2/P3, which allows you to deploy worldwide in any role but Frontline Combat Infantry.

    I know this, as it happened to me at Chilwell.
