  1. hi
    i went to the army careers office today to get back in. my name is now on the system, and told told me whats going to happen from today.

    one question i forgot to ask is how long roughly will i be waiting to hear back from Glasgow for the yes or no answer to re-joining or for the paperwork to arrive back to my local careers office?

  2. It depends how old you are and why you were discharged and whether you have any financial, criminal or medical issues. If there are any medical issues on your prior service records it could take a couple of months for APC to fully investigate and provide and answer and some back and forth with medical records from APC and your civilian GP.
  3. well im 23, and i left because i signed off, i wasn't MD'd or kicked out. i don't any medical or criminal issues too.
  4. Then if the AFCO have sent it off, I'd expect them to receive a response within 4 weeks.
  5. ar cool. cheers for the answer.
