    I'm trying to guess your surname.
  3. I'm surprised you didn't get compassionate leave as you say you left after just 2 months.
    If you worked your ticket, then I doubt they would have you back.
    It's worth a try though.
    Good luck.
  4. See your AFCO; they are the only ones with the ability to formally look in to your records and give you reasoned advice. Have you made the appointment yet?

    Sorry to hear of your troubles.

    Basically it's not the AFCO's call whether you will be accepted back into the service - it's a medical issue.

    You may submit an application to re-join & may well be referred by the Medical Examiner to see a specialist in this field.

    Providing there were no related disciplinary issues, then the "permission to be processed" is granted on the medical aspects and the availability of jobs within your chosen trade.

    The selection decision, once approval to process is granted, rests with the AFCO.

    Best of luck - sounds like you need some. :wink:

    Rest assured there is no need to disclose medical information with regard the circumstances surrounding discharge other than to those qualified within the service to assess medically suitable for further service.

    The only bit that concerns the non-medical staff is the former service disciplinary record & recommendations for future service.

    Best of luck.
  8. Dude, time to step away from the computer. Stop putting personal details on the internet; it's a bit silly.

    Good luck though.

    The advice is to simply submit an application, be aware there may be a delay whilst your former service documents are obtained and due to the fact that there are waiting lists for many trades up to two or more years.

    You'll need to pitch-up with your discharge documentation & a former service pay statement ideally.

  10. I think Jonno Jonno was offering you some sound advice. Read Matthew Chapter 12 verse 37 for more details.

    No problem.

    I rather think Jonno was trying to help too, so let's not start an internet argument. If he wasn't (I doubt) I'll punch him on your behalf. :wink:

    We wish you well.
  12. I was trying to help mate. Former and future colleagues read this site, and you need to ensure that elements of your past you wish to remain private as you move forward remain that way.

    Information contained within internet discussions can easily be exploited, especially given that you (hopefully) may be spending a fair bit of time on here.

    Your AFCO should be the only person you ultimately wished to know some of the information provided, and I would suggest that you go over your posts and edit out some of the more personal details.

    Good luck
