A case of a specialist Senior Non-Commissioned Officer with Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is described. Partial expression of the CF trait is well known and sporadic cases are detected from time to time at recruitment, during recruit training and service. Respiratory symptoms may be mis-diagnosed as self-limiting asthma until a sweat chloride or other specific test for CF is performed.
