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. As above ,whats it like being one in the RN ? anyone got any information that isnt on the website about the job ? I went to my local office and have made my mind up 100% I want to join the RN ,But want to make my mind up first what I want to do ...

    Any input appreciated.

    Thanks A lot .

  2. as a wafu - bloody great.

    as a writer - cant say but from experience of the miserable bint in the beer token queue i'd say "shite with shite aspects"

    sorry if that doesnt help but maybe wait and see what options you have before deciding on a glorified bankers job

    A logs pers deals with the day to day admin of the ships company pay etc. Your work will be mostly computer based working on the personnel admin software called JPA. You will be responsible for making sure peoples pay is correct, that they are getting any allowances they are entitled to and advising them on what they can and can't claim for in regards to pay and allowances. You will also run the cash part of the ships office, so when you are away and due to go alongside you act like a 'bureau de change'. Logs Pers also administer the ships cash account, which involves making sure that any cash paid to or from the ship is accounted for, this is done on a system called SPA. You are also responsible for the ships registry, which involves looking after all the important mail and files that are sent to the ship.

    I'm pretty sure thats about it, but if anyone else has better info they will no doubt be along to put me right.

    hope this helps and whatever you chose to do good luck
  11. sounds like the job for me then!

    How long is the wait for the job ? thanks
  12. 15 months.
  13. are all navy jobs minimum of 12 months now ?
  14. oops - 4 pints of white lightning, a full-on messy burger and the french getting humped by mexico = one tipsy WAFU

    sorry soleil
  15. I'm confused.

    I was questioning the use of the word 'glorified'.
  16. :lol:

    That's OK, shag_shacker!

    I was little bewildered for about 15 minutes and then I thought to myself ..... "he's three sheets to the wind, isn't he?!"
