A Good Preview Of Navy Life

This is a brilliant documentary about the Royal Navy called Warship and shows in detail some of the tasks you will be doing while you are serving.

For anybody who wants a good preview on what Navy life is like I highly recommend watching a few of these episodes

It may also answer some questions you have

Or failing all that put a blanket over ur kitchen table and climb under. Lie there staring at the bottom of the table - it would help to get ur mates round to drink tinnies and bullshit each other whilst laughing loudly. Get them to pull the blanket back every hour and shine a torch in ur eyes too.

haha I will have to remember that one, or tape sponge to the ceiling

Go outside, roll in the snow and get ringing wet. Sit there until nearly frozen and cold to the bone, and hungry.
Come indoors, start getting dry, attempt to eat but just as it is ready, run outside again and do it all again.
Now say to yourself, I am doing work up, I am doing work up. :cry: :roll: :D :wink:

Bollocks, I threw a bucket of icey-cold water over me, rolled in the snow an went for a 4 mile run the other day.

In shorts and a t-shirt I might add...

Get you mum to spray diesel into the air at regular intervals, and swap the whole families shoes around.
