Hi all, as you can see im new here, not sure if ive posted this subject in the right place... Hoping to apply for the RN as a warefare officer, been doing more training and expanding my knowledge of the navy, however I have a friend who joined as a rating and has just passed his phase 2 on training. Ive recently been asking him questions etc and hes saying that the Nvy are royaly (Truley) skint and theres little chance of doing stuff like going out on RIBs etc. He saying that many members of his group have already left and now him and some others are looking into the RAF as they think it will be much more rewarding. He claims that if i joined up, I would realise that the navy is full of "Corner Cutting Mobheads". Not sure what to belive... Is this true ? I thought it was all three of the forces that are getting budgets cut ? Is it only ratings that feel this way ? would joining as an officer be much better ? Any views would be appreciated.
