Permanently medically unfit ( Royal marine commando

Firstly my huge respect to all HM Armed Forces veteran's & serving personnel.

I'm about to share my bad experience with navy recruitment process
As coming from a 4th Generation of Gurkha family
I decided to join as Gurkha but was rejected coz of being British citizen. I was given a option to join as Gurkha have to travel Nepal and hold Nepali citizenship so I can apply as Gurkha and do the selection process there. & was no chance for me because among 11,000 applications only 124-200 intake best of the best gets chosen.
So I decided to join Royal Marine commando
Was a great challenge for me but was ready to rock & roll no matter what happens. So
Here the journey beings with Royal Marine processing
Application submitted ✅
Medical examination face-face ✅
Get congrats from Dr
Eye test ✅
Peak flow ✅
Colour wire test ( result pending)
& than waiting for a RM interview
Recruiter calls, will call you in 5 weeks time for interview & quick question who is the best Gurkha or marine.
Replied both great in their own ways laughs pH off.
After 4 week, 1 day I get a quick call from recruiter do you remember when I was meant to call you. Yes sir 5 weeks time.
Recruiter I'll call you after a week phone off.
After 7+ week got call I'll call you in 6 months time pH off.
After 8 week time I'll call you in 3 months time.
I was prepared excited and suddenly received a email I started getting so happy and logged on portal.
You're permanently medically unfit. No reason we're given.
So than i immediately sent direct email to recruiter and few minutes my portal changed to application hold.

Than I thought he doesn't want me to join RM or just playing around wasting time.
So I've withdrawn my application I didn't want to from heart but I did.
Even without any medical problems was given permanently unfit that was way too far Extremely unfair.

What do you think about it guys I did the right thing or please leave a suggestion /comment.



Thank you

Not qualified nor knowledgable enough to answer. However, a quick search using the sites 'search' function kicked up this lot! May be worth a few minutes reading some of the comments until a more qualified person comes along.
