This may be of interest to RN/RM/RFA Officer applicants, ive recently started a blog on my RFA recruitment 'journey', on my blog I've posted some hints and tips in addition to the layout of the AIB assessment. An excerpt is below and a web link is www.jointherfa.blogspot.com
I am currently in the very early applcation stages, going for Logistics Officer. I have searched high and low over the internet for a detailed timeline on training; from the minute you arrive at BRNC to begin your initial training to when you finally complete your professional training...
Recently applied for the Royal Navy as I had in the past but failed the test for the role In which I applied for, they then offered me a chef position and I stupidly turned it down due to some of the stories I’ve heard such as they don’t get time off and don’t get to the see world as much as the...
Hi I'm just about to go to Raleigh in a few weeks and need the following questions answered:
1) Are showers at HMS Raleigh private?
2) Do you get ANY leave for the duration of your Phase 1 training?
3) How many persons in one dorm?
Any answers would be hugely appreciated!

Just a quick question for anyone who knows about the navy UGAS. The scheme is seven years long and is split into three parts. The first three years are intensive training, the second three years are active duty, and the last year is when you qualify with your degree. I read on the website that...
USS John S McCain collides with tanker. Fourth USN problem this year.
First post and, hopefully, not my last.
I'm currently in the process of applying to join the RNR as a Logs officer. One problem I have encountered is the number of UCAS points required. I did not do well at school at all and, frankly, during my A-Levels, nothing could have...
New to this forum and have a question regarding the joining process. I've passed all the recruitment tests and been given a start date for my basic training and a date for my Pre Royal Navy Course. Assuming I pass the PRNC am I guaranteed to start basic training on the start date given to...
Roughly two years ago I signed up with the Royal Navy, I went on to complete my pre joining tests. When it came to my medical, it was put on hold as they needed to decide weather they could pass me fit due to an injury I had acquired at around 14 years of age. I had a tiny, hairline...
Allow me to give a brief introduction of who I am and what I'm interested in. I'm 23 years old with a brother in the forces. I'm now seriously considering a career in the Royal Navy.
I'd like to apply for the role of Air Engineering Technician, but I have a few questions.
Hi signed up today to try and shed some light on my Grandfathers service in the Royal Navy during WW2. He was called Robert Hugh Pizey, the only info i have on him is a list of temporary sub-lieutenants (special branch) and things people that knew him have told me as he never liked to talk about...
This is just my personal experience, and will be updated as I progress throughout my career as a potential Warfare Specialist - this is to give you an idea of timescales and other waiting times that you may experience during your application.
Firstly, about me - I'm a 16 year old male in good...
I am looking for advice, and have certain queries to make and thought this might be the best place for it. It might be a bit long, but its probably not an average Navy application. First, some background:
I am 36, ex army, left as a Corporal of Horse (Sergeant), JTAC qualified...
I'm CO of a SCC unit with a lot of interest in PT, I have some qualified cadets but they have questions about the drill etc.
Is there such a thing as a PT manual? Either by the SCC or the RN? That we can just use for reference?
