Your rejection was probably due to the fact that you will be required to work on vehicles and weapons which all need various petrol, oil and
lubricants which may have an effect on your condition.
i would of just wore a glove lol
or put up with it, didnt stop me doing marine engineering lol :p covered in oil most days, the reason they gave
was because cost of shipping medical supplies out to warzones, it cleared up within 3 years of my application anyways.
the 2nd time i applied for tank crew is what really annoyed me though, im hardly going to speed down the motorway in a tank lol, but thats why i wasnt
allowed to join, due to my 9 points and asbo
the bond u create with people u spend in rough conditions lasts a lifetime, i wont ever forget the guys i went to camp with, if we had been a real
unit id have no qualms risking my life to protect them as i know theyd do the same, we were only 14/15 at the time with that sort of mentality.
only bad experience i really had was heatstroke lol, cleaning my weapon outside in blazin sunlight in full uniform, missed drill practice for a few
days though, every cloud...
one thing im not sure i could cope with is watching people i know die around me on the frontline, they become more than squadmates, a family almost, u
spend more time with eachother than u would with a wife. :|
fieldcraft was my game though,only got found once in whole time that we trained doing it lol.
it is good fun but then the reality sinks in when u get deployed, i was a few weeks from going to basic when i got the letter telling me that i would
no longer be going. still have it somewhere, along with a few t.a regiments biting my hand off to join soon after.. lol
