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 recently attended the RCB main board and was unsucessful, however I still intend on joining the army. During the medical I was informed that I had a varicocoele and as such if I passed the main board I would be defered and sent to a specialist.

    Until I was told about the varicocoele by the doctor I had no idea that anything was out of the ordinary due to the fact that I have never had any symptons or pains in that area.

    I'm very active in that I play a lot of sport and have done for a long time with no problems and as such I would be grateful if someone could tell me what effect this will have on my chances of getting into the army.
