Hi I am wondering if anyone has any experience of people being medically discharged but then re-joining at a later date? I was in the RM several years ago having previously been in the RMR. Randomly I developed eczema and was discharged at the end of training! The eczema came on from an allergy to a certain chemical used to tan leather in some issue boots. The problem really arose from the chemical leeching out from my boots when on exercise and being constantly wet. When not on exercise the problem went away, so obviously not ideal! This year i applied to the navy hoping to go in the CD Branch but due to my discharge i was turned down. I was wondering if anyone knows how long a medical condition needs to have been absent for until it can be classed as completely void, if indeed it can be. It has been absent for over a year now and i still wear leather boots as i am now a copper, albeit a fed up copper! Any advice appreciated!
