      MOD: Welcome bal. No names please.
      "Fellow-soldiers of the Irish Republican Army, I have just received a communication from Commandant Pearse calling on us to surrender and you will agree with me that this is the hardest task we have been called upon to perform during this eventful week, but we came into this fight for Irish Independence in obedience to the commands of our higher officers and now in obedience to their wishes we must surrender. I know you would, like myself, prefer to be with our comrades who have already fallen in the fight - we, too, should rather die in this glorious struggle than submit to the enemy." Volunteer Captain Patrick Holahan to 58 of his men at North Brunswick Street, the last group of the Four Courts Garrison to surrender, Sunday 30 April 1916.

          You think so ?

          Does the phrase "Does Not Meet Defence Forces Medical Standards" ring a bell ???

                Yes, In days when GP went into barracks instead of sending bods to the Curragh...one cadre NCO was freaking about being told by GP that recruit was underweight and having to tell parent that recruit was underweight!

                        I taught the medical was only weight & height, not actually BMI?!

                        The BMI is definitely taken at the time of the physical, if you fail you get the skin callipers, if you fail that bye bye.

                          Medical for recruting is eye test, hearing test, blood pressure, chest x-ray, dental, Doctor groping your balls etc but no BMI.

                          Yep

                            BMI is a red herring, as it is a very crude weight/height analysis.

                            I've known lots of rugby players / weight training types who were all muscle and seriously fit, yet were overweight according to their BMI.

                            I used to do pre-anaesthetic assessments which had a BMI "target" (of below 35), that we sometimes had to override depending on the individual.

                            Most Drs should have enough sense to put the chart down and look at the individual. That's where the callipers come in.
