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. This is my first post on here, I would firstly like to say hello to everyone. "HI".

    I have applied for a commission in the Navy as a Warfare Officer and am awaiting my AIB date. I have sent back the multitude of forms, and am now waiting for a reply. It has been over a month since I sent them to the Manchester office and I haven't heard a peep.

    Does anyone know how long this process takes?

    Thank you in advance.
  2. It often takes months - don't worry, you'll hear from them eventually.
  3. hi sara and does take a while.....
    it does vary on the AFCO though. some of the guys on here are/have taken the same route recently so better placed to answer.
  4. Hi Sara

    Welcome to RR.

    As the lads have said, it probably will take a while. Its often a case of hurry up and wait with the Military.

    Good luck

  5. Hi Sara, welcome. Try calling the office now as the new year is upon us.
  6. I didn't want to look too pushy by calling the office. Will they see it this way? I had thought that Xmas and NY might have slowed down the process.
  7. If anything it will reflect well on you - they will probably regard you as motivated, not pushy.
  8. Monday afternoon should be a good time as it gives the staff time to settle-in after the weekend
  9. You are right, i just gave a them a quick bell and i got told to call back on monday as they were all packing up for the afternoon. ;-p
  10. Just take it in your stride, it will take time, good luck with your Quest Sara
  11. If you PM i am also with Manchester office fantastic and they are really good.
  12. Harrassing them a bit never did anyone any harm...much. Just make sure that they don't forget you. Otherwise, as the others have said, it does take a while.
  13. No need, I got a letter in the post today (which arrived at 1pm :eek: ) stating that i am eligable for Officer entry and that they will be writing to me soon. At least i know it has arrived safe and well and that an asylum seeker wasn't trying to steal the papers- and my identity. phew.
  14. Hi Sara

    I'm waiting for AIB date too, via Plymouth OCLC.

    I only sent my papers and documents in just before Christmas and had them back yesterday. I phoned them because they forgot to return a document and then seized the opportunity to ask what next/how long.

    I was told that I should have a letter offering me an AIB date within a few weeks and if I haven't heard by the end of the month to phone back.

    If Manchester office is the same, hopefully you should get a date soon.

    Good luck - may see you there !!
  15. You can call AIB directily.. they will give you the accurate progress of the application... I know this is a late reply( just joined )... you may be at BRNC by this time.. ..
  16. I sent my application of in January, all i've received is a letter from HMS Sultan confirming receipt. I called them up and they told me that for Warfare I could be waiting until June/ July for an interview.
