    Ongoing asthma is unfortunately a "no-go" due to the fact it's a life threatening condition and incompatible with the rigours of service life serving in extreme environments.

    Those free from treatment, symptoms, prescriptions (precautionary or otherwise) for a period of four complete years may apply, but must remain free from treatment, symptoms and pass a four week peak-flow diary.

    It's appreciated this is a disappointment for many, but duty of care for the individual is paramount.
