Boarding Parties

Discussion in 'The Fleet' started by Thomsprey, Jun 4, 2015.

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. Bit of an odd question here. I have looked about regarding boarding parties, and found a lot of talk of volunteers. But could this be anyone? For example, if an officer wanted to volunteer, would they be able to go? I ask as this is something I haven't found much info on, and I plan to be a warfare officer in the future and was wondering if boarding was a possibility.
     
  2. Ah sounds like another GungHo applicant

    Boarding Officer is one of many secondary jobs you could have. It is possible but ship dependant - you will get on board and if a slot is free you can apply to be the Boarding Officer.

    Don't count on it and it is only a nice to have.

  5. If you plan on boarding a yacht, canoe sampan type boaty thing, please do not do a T*** K*** and run across the deck straight into the oggin on the other side. Can be exciting, except when called out of a nice warm bunk on a cold and rainy and windy day with a high swell. And good luck. :cool:
