I have been out of the mob nearly two and a half years now. On discharge I was diagnosed with the above due to service in diesel electric submarines, but it is not enough to get compensation. Mrs Barneyrnsm is sick to death of having the TV loud enough so I can hear it. Went for a civvy hearing test and i can get digital hearing aids for about £500 per ear. has anyone experience of NHS hearing aids or claiming for the cost of the digital hearing aids from the MOD. I await the funny retorts of eh what you saying and useful posts! Thanks!
