The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Good evening all.

    I'm in the process of joining the TA.

    Can anyone out there please tell me about the medical examination and what it entails.

    I don't have any medical problems but would like to know what is involved in the examination.

    Any info appreciated.
  2. Nah, it would be too easy!

    It's just a general physical, two arms two legs etc, no history of .... things like asthma, eyesight, blood pressure.

    Nothing drastic.
  3. The doc asked me if I could carry a rifle and was my liver strong enough to cope with the drinking.

    I lied on both counts, and he passed me. :twisted:
  4. It's ok as long as you're not allergic to latex. :lol:
  5. I did my test a few days ago, so maybe i can help. All they did with me ... tick boxes to say you have or have not had serious illnesses, did an eyechart test *im short sighted and i could read the bottem line* they did a hearing test with me, blood test checked my knees and that was mine done.
  6. Great - thanks for the replies.
