Hi all, first time poster here

I've had an email saying Congratulations and inviting me to a pre-BRNC event but no call or letter. When I called my AFCO was told that after SIFT it's out of their hands and that selection is nothing to do with them. Basically don't call again unless you require a train ticket.

Really confused and panicking that I haven't heard anything more official
Anyone in the same boat?

Yeah my AFCO said it’s all down to the ACLO at this stage. I haven’t had an email or letter yet but my ACLO said I’ve been selected... wondering if he’s pulling my leg haha.

If you’ve had an email and a pre BRNC brief invite, I guess that you’re in so congrats:D

Thanks, going to try and call the ACLO but what with it being a bank holiday I guess it'll have to wait until Tuesday

Update: got a call from my branch to strongly suggest I wait for September intake before going rating (my application for rating has been progressing)...I’m taking this as good news? I’m back in the game!

I went through selection, was not selected, went for rating and then branch said I should wait to see if I get selected second time round.

Sorry to resurrect, but following on from my last post, I’m happy to report I was selected for September :)

@photface - You can be assured of some surprised expressions/double-takes when you encounter old shipmates in your new role.

An acquaintance of mine left as a S/M PO Electrical type, gained a Divinity Degree outside and re-entered as a Naval Chaplain. As such one of his first tasks was to officiate at a Baptism (using the usual ship's bell) aboard a diesel boat refitting at Scotts Yard, Greenock one bright Sunday morning.

When he arrived fully frocked & raring to go, he was met at the gangway by the boat's OOD, a former DO of his who just would not believe that this Vicar was other than a wind-up.

It took quite some convincing by all concerned before that OOD accepted his presence as genuine, much to the delight & amusement of all present!

(Coincidentally, the current Chaplain of the SM Association is also a former Submariner [Polaris SD WE Officer] who became Ordained but he is not the same person involved in this incident.)
