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. So I'm a little bit pissed off, but moreso I'm confused, and looking for some help...
    So about a year ago I started an application to join the Australian army, I completed the YOU session and medical etc. and thought happy days...well not so I find.
    First up I received a letter stating that I was medically unfit for service for reasons X,Y, and Z. Now to be fair I was completely honest on the med q's and didn't think my previous injuries would be an issue. Long story short, after 9mths of requesting med docs from UK and getting a specialist review over here in Australia, I had an appeal which covered all the issues and it was approved in Jan.
    10th Jan rolls in and I'm told a "Service suitability check" is to be carried out. This things is like a mythical creature in which everyone knows its name but not much more as I found out. Was told it would take around 6 wks, so I thought no forward to now, 4mths later and no one can tell me anymore than wait out. I understand things do take time but it doesn't stop one getting pissed off...obviously this is Arrse, a forum for the British military, but was thinking maybe someone could give me some sort of advice, explanation about 1. What the check is
    2. Timeframe

    Mods please move if in the wrong place...
