How can anyone be "slightly" colour blind? You either know blue is blue or red is red or you don't. Simple..

"Cut the blue wire"

"This blue wire?"

"That's a bit of green string mate, you've failed".

LMAO!

at the threastarter i suggest you try to get it corrected unless it also impairs your visional capabilities (which it obviously has done).

Robbo,

I am not a doctor but being colour blind in the Forces is a no-no, AFAIK. You would be a risk to both yourself and others throughout your career, and you would not be able to distinguish the fine details of a vehicle or soldier hiding in a wood or an urban environment, let alone monitor warning lights on an equipment.

I am willing to be proved wrong, but I think that will be the consensus.

You can probably appeal, but talk to the ACIO first.

now, lets clear this up a little

did you fail the eyesight test? in that you found it difficult to read the letters on the white board.

or

did you fail the colour perception test? did they show you a book with pictures in it, that represented a series of numbers.

CP2 - normal colour perception
CP3 - colour blind - mild, usually an individual cannot differentiate between brown and green.
CP4 - severe colour blindness

obviously there are certain trades that you cannot apply to join if you have CP 3 or 4

I like people who answer their own questions - yes you'll have to wait for the doc to give his decision

and youll be ok as CP3
