Discharged TU (I) wanting to rejoin

I’m a firm believer in ,”You make your bed, now you bed down.”
Sorry mate. No sympathy from this call sign. (Cake and eat it??). Ridiculous.
I standby for lashing......
Couldn’t give 2 fcuks tbf.

IMO the OP's original intention is one of those things that it's impossible to judge without additional knowledge.

We all know people who've played a "tactical wibble" to get out of a deployment/ course/ draft.

By the same token, the OP could just as easily have been completely mismatched to the RN, had a bad time mentally and is trying to claim he was faking it a few years down the line to have a (probably ill-advised) second bite at the cherry. It must have been the psychiatrist's medical opinion that he was profoundly unsuitable for service life in order to grade him TU (I) so I'll take that at face value, it's not a good choice of lifestyle for everyone.

Fair one.
I still stand by my post.

Also, why should his entry have to endure him dripping every 5 mins if he changes moods again??
I reckon we all had the free rider coasting it in basic.
Then, sea time. Different ballgame. I personally cannot see the OP rejoining. Maybe, the COVID has resurrected an urge??? Who knows, who cares.

Pretty much agree mate, I doubt he'll get back in with a TU (I) discharge based on the wording in BR3 anyway, at least in the short-term.

I wish him good luck in his future (civvie) career though - just because the RN wasn't for him at 18 doesn't mean he can't be successful elsewhere (I have this chat with trainees fairly often in the training establishment I work in).

Totally agree mate.
But, I won’t wear kiddy gloves.
He wanted out! Job done and played wibble. Now that’s another space for someone who actually wants to serve, instead of missing home etc.
My opinions.

Late to the party on this one but TU(I) would be a pretty difficult one to appeal against. In my experience, it is usually only given in extreme circumstances whereby the individual's actions at the point prior to discharge caused significant concern prejudicial to the wellbeing of the person or those with whom they work. ie: suicidal, homicidal, psychotic, etc.

Whilst it's appreciated "well meaning" advice from colleagues may have been instrumental to the type of discharge of a minor, there will have been mitigating circumstances which we are not privy to.

My advice for the OP, to investigate future potential for re-employment in the UK Armed Forces, is to submit a Subject Access Request to request a copy of the documented history relating to the circumstances, medical, disciplinary or otherwise, which relate to the category of discharge and the award(?) of any compensatory remuneration: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/obtain-information-about-yourself-held-by-mod

From that, you should be able to gauge whether it is worth accruing the evidence to disprove the allegedly fraudulent release from the service by submitting an appeal.
