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. :money: Hey, just had my conditional date now!

    Looking majorly forward to HMS Raleigh and earning those Dolphins!

    Anyone else going 4th November?
     
  2. Sorry mate , joined in 1971 & left in 1995 , best of luck though , and enjoy your career , keep us informed wont you , :thumright:
     
  3. I remember sitting in the NAAFI bar scuppering pint after 'free' pint the week before I left the Pusser. I had been invited along for my own leaving run by some 'old hands' that I had trained about 5 years beforehand.

    A sprog happened by and was taken in by the jovial atmosphere. He sat down and said to me, 'Isn't the Navy great, I've just signed my life away to serve my country'. I honestly had mixed emotions, having just completed nearly 35 years, but I burst out into fits of laughter when I thought of a similar instance way back in the 60's.

    Before I could say anything, the youngster took flight, disheartened and dismal. I hope my response never affected his choice of career too badly.

    The moral of the story is, when you start a thread like 'Hey, just had my conditional date now!' Be prepared for disappointment. The streets in London are not paved in gold.
     
  4. What's your branch of choice matey?
     
  5. Yes Will, I'm going 4th November, but then I'm going most of the time. The doc tells me it's an age thing, something to do with the prostate.
    You dig out mate, and good luck. Make the best of it while you can.
