  1. Hi All, new here so be gentle :)

    My question is this.... I am re-joining the TA after a break of about 4 yrs, I'm going from Corps to Infantry and have been told I will have to go through the full cycle again. The thing is when i was in before i never told them I had mild asthma as a child on my original medical questionaire and it was never brought to light I was in for 5 yrs and never once had any probs with it, I've had no attacks in over ten years including while on excercise and in hot countries Gibraltar etc, it never bothers me I run the 1.5 mile in under 10 mins and am in training for a marathon in September so my overall fitness is good. Im worried now that I will have to complete the RG8 medical forms, will this be brought to light if i dont mention it , or should I fess up and face being denied, or will I even have to complete the RG8 as I have been in before.

    Cheers Lads.
