Does this 100% bar you from rejoining?
It doesn't stop you applying but the clue is in the text.

Generally speaking, the individual really has to hack a lot of people off in their haste to leave, in order not to be recommended a subsequent re-entry. Most commonly this happens if an individual wants out before the mandated minimum four weeks, often using the tried and trusted pencils up the nose, underpants on head ploy or just by being a complete cluster. Most do not realise at the time that their wild and whacky actions are recorded for future reference, should an epiphany later occur.

Sometimes the category states "Not Recommended All Services" or just "Not Recommended RM and or RN". It depends on the actions & antics of the person leaving at the rush.

If not recommended for re-entry and providing a good period has elapsed since discharge, it would help to rebuild those burnt bridges by getting a few independent references vouching for integrity, maturity, independence, reliability, work ethic, etc and establishing a good rapport with you AFCO prior to re-applying so that your careers adviser considers you a credible, viable prospect.

Again, facing East may help. Possibly.

I got told I was totally unsuitable for service in the RM when I went on AIB.
In one of my present jobs I'm told how unsuitable I am on a fairly frequent basis! Still there though. :)

@dg1991 I reckon you've got a good steer there from Ninja. Let us know how you get on. Best of luck.

Now who’s laughing “sir”
Reminds me of a RM Brigadier addressing an All UK recruiting conference in Portsmouth.

The chap is a bit of a legend, you name it he's done it, a top man. And, never knowingly stood too close to the clippers when visiting the barbers.

"When I joined the Marines" he began in a broad accent, "my Careers Adviser in Liverpool told me I'd never be an Officer as long as my arrse pointed downwards". Much sniggering.

By happy coincidence, I was the Office Manager in Liverpool at the time of the conference.

"Just shows what they know, eh?" he continued...

S'pose I should've been relieved he didn't give me a Lord Flashheart-style headbutt as he left the auditorium :(
