    my cousin is 16 and hoping to join up, however im pretty sure he suffered from mild turrets and sometimes twitches when he is nervous, im also sure i'ved worked with a lad who had this and he is still in, but what are the restrictions on joining?

    I would imagine ballistic and one or two others may be best qualified to answer this one.

    however you spell it- the condition where people twitch
  10. Did you actually get to join the RN on 5th Oct?

    If so, ask the staff about A,B & X & Y turrets, bound to be one there who can remember.

    Or is this a WAHH?

    Confused of Hamptonshire.

    yes mate, im a wafu so turrets dont mean a thing to me
  12. Ask the Staff. RR answers are as reliable as PM Broons's prudent promises.
  13. Even a Wafoo is part of the Royal Navy. Do start learning: then you can share some of the pride that others before you have prepared for your inheritance.

    Is your cousin perhaps a birdwatcher? If he is thats OK, so is Jolly Jack (or he used to be, once upon a time in the days of turrets, etc....)

    That would be a twitch then.

    Tourettes sufferers also call the bit *dogs cocks* where they swear a twitch or is it *fatpigstwats* a tic? I can never remember *youboringfuckingtwat*. I'm sure your mate will be fine. Hope that helps.

    "MIld Tourettes" is that where he just shouts "Blooming Heck!!" or "My Gosh!!!" instead of "Phuq sh*t pi** Wa*k !!!" :p

    Any psychiatric condition present at the time of assessment is a bar to entry.

    Therefore your cousin's Tourette's syndrome (George Gilles de la Tourette, 1859-1904) will prevent entry to the RN, or any of the Armed Forces.
