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. I've got a brief to do on BOST/FOST

    and as i have never done it im wondering if anyone on here who has could tell me a little about it. Im going to do some searching online also but just want some personal experiences?

    i just thought something a little more personal than the bog standard explanations you usualy get online

    any help is appreciated
  2. BOST is more fun than JMC.
  3. Welcome back, long-lost little sparrow!

    After all your earlier anguish we only heard from someone else here that you had actually cracked RALEIGH.(BZ BTW)

    But - Take a B********g for not telling us y'self, gal. Humph! =-(

    BOST/FOST? - Pass 'em or it's round the buoy.:winkrazz:
  4. BOST is not fun and I always prefer Joint Warrior (ex-JMC) or whatever its now called (last done 2007).
    In short, BOST is 6 weeks of hell.
  5. Six weeks of pissing up in Plymouth every weekend and getting up at 5am everyday to clean. Chuck in a few Thursday wars, fire ex's on a daily basis and the odd week of defence watches for good measure. If you are lucky you'll get to shoot some blanks at a Chief gunner dressed as an Arab and touch up an 'actress' on the DISTEX.

    That's about it really.

    I recall being absolutely gutted after digging out to **** in the 4.5'' Deep Mag, it was sparkling and the FOSTys said it was the best looking deep mag they'd seen on any 42, the only thing stopping them giving me a BZ was the fact that some clown had stuck an exit arrow on a fire extinguisher.

    Imagine kit musters at Raleigh but for the entire ship and every single piece of it. That's BOST, a giant 6 week long kit muster.
  6. BOST is 6 weeks but then you got all the work up prior which is worse.

    Depending on the type of ship depends on what type of hell you receive having done many on different ships, and more recently done one on Amphib.

    Joint Warrior which was JMC is two weeks of defence watches. On Amphib it is all about landing the green and command and control. Utilising the task group in the right way to carry out this aim.

    What's the brief for?

  7. Plymouth for BOST effing sprog. What about Portland??? Saying that small ships do Faslane. Same shit different location.

    Make sure you get in your brief about OSTies contradicting themselves over the OST period too.
  8. And that occasionally FOSTies may not have read the latest rules and regs, and/or make stuff up as they go along. The latter is generally called 'best practice', also known as 'pulled out of their arse'.

  9. But they don't make policy so how can they set the "standard". Surely it's the biggest contradiction of all??
  10. Make sure that you add the line "its nothing to worry about, its just a tick in the box before our Global Piss Up Deployment". And remove all porn mags from underneath your rack as well, unlike what I did, got caught and then got a bollocking because "the standard of the porn wasnt good enough".
  11. or don't get caught with porn at the back of your sock drawer and then get a bollocking because it 'offended' the female Joss. If you don't want to be offended, don't go digging around in my ****ing sock-drawer then!
  12. I bet there are a few 'toys' found in the female mess from time to time??!!
  13. Yep. But, bless them, the Josses are just as humourless when they find those as when they find ****-socks.
  14. **** sock? Where's your romance?

    Mine's a love sock.
  15. And be that a lesson to all of you!
  16. That's why we have Stds. A sock of any kind is unseemly.
  17. Not if you give it a face.
