    No more Phase 0?

    Hi all, One for @Branch-Hopper et al, perhaps. Have heard through the grapevine that units now aren't permitting attestation until all aspects of the joining process have been successfully completed. Does this mean Phase 0/Holding classes are now no longer being held, and new recruits now go...

    RNR Bounty (CofE) Rates for Project Firefly?

    Grateful for a steer on what Reference (e.g. BR / JSP) states the Bounty / Certificate of Efficiency payment tiers for the RNR. My understanding is - though I could be wrong - that Project Firefly transfers do not go in at the basic tier; though haven't found that anywhere official. Just want...

    Summer Employment RNR

    Hi Everyone, In a strange spot (figuratively ;) ) where I'm about to begin medical school in Ireland (ROI), being based in Dublin. I went to the RNR branch in NI and spoke to the great team there. They don't give out bursaries to students outside the UK, understandably. So I'm wondering if I...
