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 have a medical conditon called chondrodysplasia-punctata. it is where my bones grow at different rates. it doesnt affect me in my day day to life or when i am at army cadets, i do everything everyone else does. I want to join as an officer but i am not sure if it will get in the way and stop my joining, i can get an opperation to fix it but it will take about 6 months including recovery time.

    Any thoughts on the condition?

    Medical officers whats you appionion?

    How many threads on this subject?
  3. You can have the op, but you'll be defered for 12 months, then you can start the application process, but do expect alot of questions and probable requests for x-rays etc.
  4. Best advice would be to go and see a recruiting officer at your local AFCO.
