Hi, I was told at the AFCO that I could keep my beard if I was successful with the Royal Navy app. Brilliant, but is there an un-official taboo against them? I couldn't find any bearded types in any of the literature I was given... Is it technically permissible but in reality frowned upon? Similar to the RAF order that you may turn upto work on a Horse and have the SWO stable it for you? One of the Crab lads was desperately trying to arrange that on his last day!
