I know the name of the game is all about deferred gratification, still, when your long term unemployed and all you do it work sporadically in a paper factory for a few weeks with people who have no teeth and come into work half cut.... two years of THAT future before you can begin your idea of a new life is very difficult to see...
Thanks for the heads up rem3pt, I'll get the ball rolling asp.
When the navy (ships and boats) are at sea does the crew get paid extra? (I read on the navy website it was £6 a day but cannot find the page)
Also how often are you required to be on duty - when discussing the RFA they said it would be a sea for roughly 7 months a year. Is it similar in the surface and submarine fleet?
Cheers to any replies.

Get your arse along to HMS CAMBRIA the RNR unit in Sully. Two reasons: Firstly, you'll get a taste of what the RN is like, remember its just a taste but you can get too work with the RN and that can only help, secondly once you're in the RNR the guys along there are fantastic and have contacts - when I was down there we used to help people get better jobs all the time, its another way of meeting people with the same values and getting along.
There are lots of positives about the RNR and whilst it does have the weekend warrior image still, once you've got some training done and in your case that could be quite quick, you can work with the RN and get paid a decent wage.
Daft not to!
Now go and get ready to go along! and get your RN application in once you've considered which branch. No reason why you can't do the two together.The only Life lesson, "Being right is irrelevant".
