Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

  1. Hi All,

    I've been looking to join up with the TA as part of LIAG and wanted to understand if a partial hearing loss in one ear will impact my application.

    I've read a couple of posts on the forum and the chart which references the H rating. I don't know exactly where my hearing sits but would guess my left ear would be H3 at best, and potentially as bad as H4. My right ear is unaffected and should be H1 or H2 I'd say.

    Looking for thoughts on this.
