My son joined the REME 12 months ago. He was taken on as a metalsmith in the REME but failed a practical exam so he was going to join the signals. Whilst out of training he got charged by the police for being drunk in charge of a vehicle ,so this has held up his move. He has been out of training for 5 months. His commanding officer had him in this morning and said they will have to discharge him as he has been out of training for 5 months due to the ongoing court case.. He is gutted he loves the army . Could he possibly rejoin the army later again ? He would quite happily join the infantry ,any advice appreciated.
