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. Just been given a start date for HMS Raleigh, feb 14th.. Fully excited f'in sweet!

    see you on the other side, proud to be on my way into the ranks of the finest :D
     
  2. You see folks. Short notice entry dates do happen. Someone must have withdrawn and lucky old you were next on the the list. I hope it all goes well for you.

    Other newbies are now queueing up to know how long you waited, when was your RT etc.........
     
  3. Congratulations, Andrew.
     
  4. Sorry Drakey - intention wasn't to sound like a smug tw*t - just happy and wotnot. I've had a longish wait, first applied april 2009.
     
  5. Congrats mate. Hope it all goes well for you.
     
  6. You need to make friends with a wren to really achieve the best wake up call of all time.

    I find nothing beats a shake (mid ships with lips of course) followed by a nice cup of tea and marmite soldiers.
     
  7. Didn't think that. Genuinely pleased for you. With waiting times so long, everyone wants to get in quickly and are bound to be inquisitive in order to give them a perspective of how long they might actually have to wait.

    Good luck.
     
  8. Sound - thought I might have bounded in with a little over-excitement.. bloody internet and it's lack of any kind of expression. :roll: Anyway cheers fella!
     
  9. I can top that. 12th of January 2009, starting on the 14th of March. :wink:

    Well done, though. You must be bouncing off the walls :)
