Ive just read that Osgood schlatters disease of the knees can get you discharged from the armed forces, however i havent had any problems with osgood schlatters for 2 or 3 years. Im just really worried that this will affect my entry into the army, if anyone has any first hand experience or just general knowledge about it then i would be grateful.Thanks in advance !!

* and yes i did use the search !!

I suffered from it in my youth in both knees. After a while it cleared up and although its in my med rec, it never had any bearing on joining the T.A.

Although, the regs may be different.

Yup, woop. Hopefully our medicals get through without a hitch because thats the only thing that would be able to stop me to be fair.

Yeah because you can just swap regiments whenever you feel like it.

lol, im not saying that

Im saying, get through basic together, go to rifles together


and then do P-company and join the paras.


I know a lot of people who have transferred to Paras

Note the word EVENTUALLY, its definately possible !
I'm not saying it isn't but do you think one regiment struggling with manning is going to be very helpful to someone who wants to transfer to another regiment? Be wary of what you get told in the AFCO.
 
#13
If its what they want to do and they have the oppurtunity and talents whch are better suited elsewhere, I dont see why they'd be selfish enough to stop them progressing with their army career
 
#15
Talents which are better suited elsewhere? What talents are these? You are proposing being an Infanteer in one regiment then transferring to be an Infanteer in another.

The Rifles Regiment

The Parachute Regiment


Theres a Subtle difference, im still trying to figure it out myself though :roll:

Ah I get it one has rifles the other parachutes.

So these talents of yours, where do they come into it?
 
#18
I didnt specify myself in the example


but if youve completed Pcompany and the Parachute course


youve got the right to be a parachute regiment soldier, hence your talents would be better suited there


so why stop someone in that postition, its their career

Incorrect you would also need to be an Infanteer. The point I am trying to get across to you is that if you want to be in 2 Para then join Para Reg from the start. The Rifles are going to think your great if you turn up out of training and inform them you want to transfer. Do you know how long it takes to do P Coy? Will your Bn want to lose a man for a course that will be of no benefit to them whatsoever?
 
#20
i dont want to go to rifles then go straight to paras


that would be pointless.

Im no way near good enough to do P Company from the start, i need to let my body mature propely first


so thats why i join at 16, rifles til im about 20/21 then apply for p-company, hopefully pass and then join the parachute regiment
