Hello everyone I'm having a question I'm finishing my engineering degree this year and I want to join the army unfortunately the army in Ireland is pretty crap so legion seems to be my only option.

My only concern is my index finger on my right hand had surgery after my karate tournament. My hand is now perfectly fine and I'm also left handed however I still have scar.
Thank you for reading Alan.

If you have a full range of motion & strength in your finger i can´t see why they would reject you.
I have a scar on my right hand where they operated due to a knife wound, ok i was in the Army at the time but they sent me to physio only 1 time ! practice it yourself. no problems. just squeezed a ball for a few weeks..LOL.

best to ask the Legion guys but i would do it to back yourself up. Been mentioned before on here that you would have to maybe get an X-Ray done at your costs at a Hospital there. therefore i see it as wise to bring med documents to support your claims. Maybe translated in French along with the originals.

It looks minor to me, but am no Doctor. ..
Take along your medical records if you want and let them decide
With an engineering degree. ..you could travel and make more dosh in 1 year than a legionnaire makes in his 5 years contract.
Think about it
