  1. Hi all

    I am due to be medically discharged due to a ruptured ACL even though i'm having surgery & i will return to full duties.
    i will have 6 months recovery in civvie street & will look to re-join.

    I have completed all my training and am awainting my first posting. Would this make me a re-joiner or re-enlister?
    Is there a difference & what is easier to re-join as?

    thanks all

    cant they downgrade you to a desk while you recover? I've known a few who werent able to get back in again afterwards
  3. my troopy has worded my appendix 18 to try for that but he says that because i'm not in the field army the regiment will not see me as worth keeping. I know another soldier who has the same recovery time but has just been put on the same course that i have already completed.. Very confused 7 pissed off.

    hopefully someone will be along with better current knowledge but all I can say is keep at it and try to stay in.

    see if the sgts mess need a steward or get moved to the cooks/medics for a bit.
