Have you tried speech therapy?
Lots of people with a stutter learn to overcome it using one or more of the various methods taught by therapists.
If the stutter is caused by nerves, for instance, then I am sure that this can be relatively easily overcome :)
Good luck :)

Hi FM and welcome.

Firstly, have you always had a stutter or has it developed recently? Have you seen a speech therapist at all?

I have a couple of really good civvy friends who are SPs and, at your age, the stutter may be related to confidence, possibly temporary and may not a medical issue that will affect your chances of joining the RM.

For info, you may find that a MOD moves this to the Newbies forum where you will be able to get some excellent advice from the likes of Ninja Stoker.

Best of luck.
