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:

    Drakey would be a good source to verify the likelihood of this happening. It would be helpful if the initial source branch was stated.

    My gut feeling is the young lady could reasonably be back-trooped/classed/squadded if she is medically down-graded. Equally she could be back classed for failing an element of phase two training.

    Depending what trade she initially joined as, it's more likely she would be put on "hold-over" until the next phase two course of that specialisation started- unless there was a huge gap in the training pipeline. In such circumstances, she may be offered a branch transfer, but it would have to be a very small trade with the only other option being discharge & a rejoin when the next course came through Raleigh. Equally she could be offered a branch transfer because she failed phase two & the option was transfer or be discharged.
  5. Only time I've heard of this happening was with an NA(SE) who failed an element of phase 1, because of the length of time between Phase 2 courses the recruit in question was offered branch transfer to LOGS(CS) or discharge.

    See what they offer her, if she doesn't fancy any of the jobs, PVR and reapply, I can't think of a better reason to PVR than that one really.
