The UK armed forces is the 5rd largest military in the world in terms of expenditures after U.S , china, Saudi Arabia, and Russia. The UK is also 1 of the only 3 countries to have nuclear bombs sufficient to destroy an entire country, along with U.S and Russia, although all 10 of the worlds most developed countrys have nuclear bombs capable of destroying entire cities. The comander-in-chief of the UK armed forces is the Queen who also commands the Canadian army and all those of the Commonwealth realms.

Do the UK armed forces test for steroids specifically Dianabol?

Part of the UK Armed Forces medical examination requires you to give blood for analysis; they screen nearly everything. In my interview with the army, i quote the major who interviewed me as saying "the armies policy is dont do drugs" and "if you take them, we wont take you." However, as the use of anabolic steroids within the UK is legal, even if they do screen for it. I should not see it being an issue. Regards
