A Few Questions

Hi ,

Ok I have given it a lot of thought for a few months now . I have decided joining the Royal Navy is what I want to do , for a solid career .

Originally I wanted to go in as a Personnel Logisitician , but there really does seem to lack information on this role ? Can anyone point me to some information ,regarding the day to day life as a writer ?

Also I have had a look and can't for the life of me seem to find a revised list of waiting times for 2011 ,does anyone have one out there?

Finally ,Im 21 years old will be 22 in May . Is this too old to be joining up at this stage in my life? is it ever too late ?

Thanks Everyone.
Gary.

Thanks for the help guys ! Anyone got any advice as to wether or not being on a sub or ship is better ?

Thanks

Only you can make that decision about which to type of vessel to go on. Some people will say boats are best (usually by those on them) and some will say ships are.
 
also Tommo.....you forgot the other important question (for those considering boats).... Do you like grey, gloomy, rainy Scotland? Land of the Ginger ninja

:p

For some reason ,I think I would prefer to work on a sub :) Is it true that as a personnel logi , that I am likely not to step onto a vessell for years ? If so where do I go? just stationed on land somewhere ?

Thanks

If not on a ship or sub mate you will be in a Unit Personnel Office (UPO) or something connected to that (Cash Office etc) in one of the bases. Thats general though a writer is better placed for specific stuff

I see .. I have just been browsing and found that on the RN website , they say that an Acquaint Course is available in Fife .. Is this for anyone that is considering signing up ?

Cheers

Depends if you live near to where your based. I live near (ish) to Faslane so I drive in everyday. Its your choice at the end of the day
