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. Do all the Services Share the same medical board??
     
  2. No......some use a proctoscope others use a vagina speculum....
    but it's your choice what you go for!!!!!!
     
  3. haha smart arse,
    well my situation is i got turned down by the army till next summer
    so i was wonderin if i could try and join the marines, and they would have different standards
     
  4. You're being quite vague - what were you turned down for, and as this is a public forum you may not want to reveal that info, but it's difficult to say whether another service would have you without knowing why you were deferred.
     
  5. ok ill jus come out with it
