Thought this might be a topic for info, esp for all those wanting to join the RN or are about to. Different forms of discipline in the RN; I, myself, cannot actaully comment, I was a good lass (actually, never got caught, apart from once). Whilst on my OM2's course in HMS Dryad, a few of us lasses were caught breaking into a lad's mess, with a fire hose, marker pens and any foods that could make a mess, destorying they guy's mess. As punishment, we had to repaint the mess, no biggy. However, there are 2 main sets of punishments in the RN, Number 9's and CO's punishment, there is another name for this I think. So, anyone out there want to explain a little more as to what these are for our next RN generation?
