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. Fall in three thick, tallest on the flanks shortest in the middle.

    Just a thought, it is now illegal to ask some one their age when applying for a job. Retirement age no longer existed.

    How many old timers are going to queue up and re-enlist? If you were a civil servant with an official No., providing you had a good track record you would have to be considered for the job before anyone else. If this applied to the navy would we have problems?
     
  2. Think I'll give it a miss. Twenty two years of having to be subservient to many of the officers I served with was enough. Having said that many more that I served with OK, a few were magic.
    No as a civilian with my mortgage paid and enough funds to survive comfortably on I think I'll pass.
    However I'm due to pick up my old age pension in 2010 so please guys keep paying the taxman
