Advertising Submarine Service

Discussion in 'Submariners' started by TheRoy, May 15, 2008.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I was thinking about the lack of submariner applicants and came to the conclusion the service is just not advertised enough. Never really see much about it except that naff advert...why not show it more in depth i.e promotion, pay, parades, families days, comradeship, the PRIDE and also life NOT on duty/ops? Most civvies are clueless about forces life as it is and think its 24 hours a day 365 days a year work, and are not aware of the 'playing hard' side of things. Seems silly because if more people knew what life (in all forces i suppose) was like and the benefits/life experience that could be gained from being in there would be a queue right up the road from AFCO! You would think a life of adventure would be a dream for most young people instead of standing on street corners wasting away, or doing the same, badly paid job day in day out. Strange. Todays youth maybe?
     
  2. i watched the RN Two Six video yesterday on RNcom and there was a little bit about submarine recruitment on there . hang on ill find it and post link ....
