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. Hi I'm joining the RN as a CIS rating I'm just wondering is their any shore postings for this branch and where about in the world would they be?

  4. Naples
  5. Whitehall...probably.
  6. RAF (Mod) Wyton, Cambridgeshire
  7. Falklands
    Anywhere you find Royal Marines Barracks
    All air stations
    Get your green lid and go 148 and you could find yourself anywhere!
  8. Having thought about it, WT Shack, under a duvet reading porn.
  9. You'd be very unlikely to find an ET(WE)(CIS) at either of them unless he/she is employed out of branch. I think you are mixing up CTs and CIS!

    Most commcens, including Whitehall, are manned by civvies now with the exception of Northwood probably. I suspect the majority of ET(WE)(CIS)1s and 2s will be employed in the Portsmouth / Devonport / Faslane areas when not on a ship.

    Overseas possibilities are Gibraltar, Naples maybe Belgium and Norway. Not sure how many of these have ABs th0ugh.

  10. Never seen a CIS at a RM unit or NAS (been based at CU, CLR and 42 CDO). Royal have their own signallers for come and the clerks do the DII stuff.
