Rejoining after Medical Discharge.
So I was medically discharged from the ITC Para back in 2014 for a Grade 2 stress fracture, I was told then in my med board that I WAS able to rejoin in 1 years time. So I waited a year and began the rejoin process but my parents didnt want me to rejoin the army and pushed me into applying for the navy, I had to do a 3 month diary for them and get a letter off my GP then went for a medical, It was about this time that I decided to sack my parents and the navy off and apply for the army (paras again) but about 3 weeks after my medical I got a letter from the navy medical officer saying that I am permanently unfit join. So my question is will this affect my army application? All I had was a ONE grade 2 stress fracture in my right leg and I have had no further problems since then.
I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
Hi John, Not an expert on this matter I do know a few years ago with all the cut backs, budget etc the army were getting picky. People who had been issued an inhaler historically on their civvy med docs were being rejected. Even if if was for hayfever and not asthma.
However that being said the Army may nt have access to the Navy records if you kept it on the QT. Have put a post up about this in the members area of our FB page. Wait out

Apply anyway, the only way to find out properly is to go through the mill. Collect all of our paperwork and retain copies of everything as you go through, also worth keeping a diary of calls, emails and such like. If you are too high risk for para have a contingency plan.
