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. Hello I was after a bit of advice, I was ment to start the army on the 8th of October but I broke my ankle a few weeks ago and was given a years defferal, it was In a cast for 3 weeks and within 2 weeks after that I was running about on it and the specialist and physio has said it's back to full strength and I should be able to do army training, is it worth putting an appeal in against the years defferal ?
  2. What do you think?

  3. Yes ? But what is the likely hood the defferal will either get dropped or shortened ?

    You created an account on here purely to ask a load of has-beens, never-beens, disgruntled squaddies and experts on absolutely everything (and I include myself in at least 2 of those descriptions) ...something you could simply ask the recruiting office?

    It's a classic Dr Pepper for me. Put in an appeal - what's the worst that can happen?

    On the other hand, don't put in an appeal and you KNOW what will happen. **** all for a year.

    Join us for next week's show, where someone will be asking us "Just what happens if I put my head in a lion's mouth whilst flickin it's luv spuds?"

  5. 1 year will give you time to strengthen the ankle & get back to full fitness.
    Why would the army want you to break down in training & pay you to be off sick?
    But you could always talk to your local ACIO for the definitive answer??
  6. Bit of an over reaction there... Non the less thanks
  7. Appeals

    You cannot appeal against a rule.

    You could only appeal a misdiagnosis, if for example your ankle had been merely sprained, and not actually broken.
