After a few months of thinking carefully over what I wanted to do with my life, I have come to what I think is a good solution. This was made easier after attending the RNR recruitment evening last night at HMS Cambria. I'm currently studying as a post-graduate to eventually qualify as a solicitor, but still wanted to be part of the RN as much as possible. So the best option to allow me to practice as a solicitor, but still have that RN connection is to join the RNR. Already done the RT test last summer before I was offered this post graduate course. So its just on to the interview, medical and fitness before basic training. The main reason for the thread is to gauge from other RNR's more about the two roles i'm interested in. At the moment both seaman specialist and communication information specialist . From what I was told last night as a seaman specialist if you are called up to serve with the RN, then you will get a lot more sea time than say a CIS. How accurate is this? And also would be great to know general experiences of each branch. Cheers!
