    If you search "army medical disqualification list" you can see what the MoD list. And you may be better calling your local RNLI office to find out, but know that isn't a 'job', you dontt get paid. If you are interested in the military and boats, why not look at the Navy or Air Force

    Thanks, I know they are volunteers, I was just wondering if anyone knew if you could join. I have checked the RAF and they do not allow people to join if they have ME so I will look to see if I can find the list for the army.

    If the RAF don't allow it the it is 99.9% likely the armt and navy also wont. As it is an MoD disqualification, but check just to be sure. It may also be worth visiting your local recruitment office
