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. hi all
    could anyone offer some advice i have a metal plate in my arm which has been there for the last 15 years it has never caused me any probs does anyone know if this is likley to prevent me from joining the army
    thanks in advance
  2. if its been in for 15 years, and its intended to stay in - you should be fine

    as long as its not a full length pin or nail
  3. Or unless it's depleted uranium, and you were on the other side in GRANBY...

    Only joshing.
  4. Metal plate you say? Could come in handy, no need for mess tins :)
  5. Certainly shouldn't be a problem. I joined with a metal plate in my leg. Only thing is that the Army will not take it out for you once you join...not that that should be a concern but I was informed of this on my joining medical....
