Evening, I was hoping I could get some help regarding references. Left the Army in February after 6 Months. I was discharged during Phase 1 (administrative, medical grounds). Most of that time was spent on "USL". Roughly around a month was actually spent at Pirbright. Unless the conditions leading to my discharge are entirely relevant (I wan't an horrible 'un or owt, discharge was purely medical) I wouldn't like to go in to that on here. I was just wondering a few things. 1. How would I go about getting a reference? 2. Am I wasting my time even trying? 3. Will a reference include the details of my medical history? 4. If I didn't spend much time getting involved (wasn't allowed), will that reflect poorly on my reference? 5. Is my record of service, discharge papers sufficient to an employer? I'm just hoping that this won't create a problem for me, I've been out of work since I left. Thanks for any help, Ash.
