I "failed" the medical on my hearing, which was at the level required for Pilot in the RAF, and never appealed as I started a...

    Summer Employment RNR

    Hi Everyone, In a strange spot (figuratively ;) ) where I'm about to begin medical school in Ireland (ROI), being based in Dublin. I went to the RNR branch in NI and spoke to the great team there. They don't give out bursaries to students outside the UK, understandably. So I'm wondering if I...
