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. Must your private (civilian) medicial records be made available to the army for your initial and continuing medical tests?
  2. are you afraid of what the army may see has been or is wrong with you?
  3. Yes. My back and knee complaints are on record as well as being medicated for depression a few years ago. Only received painkillers for the back and knee though. No surgery or anything. They have healed and just got stronger since I've been exercising. As long as I'm carefull the back is fine. The depression is long gone.
  4. Dont apply to join the paras!!

    If youve been clear for a few years then you may be OK
  5. Hmm,

    How strict are they on depression related illnesses?
