Did my dozen (1952-1964) best thing I ever did and will never regret one thing about it except not staying in. Not sure how I would cope with the changes but maybe " boats " is still boats. If yer in great, if yer thinking about it don't hesitate get in

Finished 24 in 1995. Found life outside a little strange at first but used to it now.

Would I join again - I don't think so. Too many changes - too few reasons to change and listening in here - way way to many political correcties in there now !
Left 88 at the time it was great then it became apparent just how much the mob looked after/did for you what a shock! What a big bad world. Used to it now.
All the same would do it all again, some things slightly different though
Did my little bit.......11 years.......mainly boats (dieselsaurus T boats ).


Don't think I would enjoy todays Navy as much..........but who knows.
Still serving and close to completing 27 years having submitted my notice and awaiting early release to commence new employment.

Have really enjoyed my time and the good times far outweigh the bad ones, but it really is time to go now.

Thanks for the memories and comrades through the years

Interesting, around 250 views of the thread, only 26 have bothered to make an entry into the poll, even allowing for some of us visiting the thread several times its a low poll turnout.
Ex RN. Did 12 years and came out on notice in '90.
Enjoyed my first 9, then when I re-engaged, they stuck me in a crane at Coulport for 2 years, then gave me a Guzz based ship, so I said "Phuque ye!"
I'd still do it again, though.
Did 24 years from 71 to 95 , loved it at time , but love it outside now , and agree far to much PC , don't think i could handle it now , :roll: :lol:
