Will this taint my chances?

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. I'm looking to join the army in a couple of years after I finish travelling.

    Basically one of my uncles was in the Royal Anglians during the 80's/early 90's. He lost his rag with another squaddie one day and stabbed him in the leg (as you do). He got let off but naturally it hindered any chance of further promotion so he quit. I'm pretty keen on joining the Royal Anglians. Is it best I just don't mention his name at an interview? Or is it really not a problem?
  2. Forget it, it's completely irrelevant.
  3. Nice one. May as well lock or delete this thread then.

    Noooo! It has, by Law, to be left open for several days for numpties to crayon over. Your question has been answered extremely well, leave this thread to the kids to play with for a while :)
  5. Unless of course he is the son of the stabbed and the son of the stabber has recently joined.......
  6. Well then it turns into a problem.
  7. Hasn't even joined yet and already he's bitching about stabs.

    Excuse me gents that taxi is for me!!
  8. They'll have to finnish the fight off then in a death match, I favour the Flash Gordon turn table in the sky thingy!
