So you don't have to do NE or Raleigh, result... but you lose your hook for training?? What exactly is 'training'?

Can you remind us of how long you've been out (can't be arsed looking through old threads)

As for your GCB you keep that.
Unless there is a continuity between regular and reserve you won't keep your original SN
Trades- take your pic of AWFP, Logs, CIS and another obscure branch I know nothing about, something to do with shipping routes.

Ok, Firstly you only lose your rate through training during the in-house package. Quite a bit of the RNR stuff will be different from the RN, so you'll have to spend a period of time in new entry learning that. As you'll be a trainee in that department you will wear new entry tabs the same as the rest of the current intake. Once that's done I assume that you'll put your rank slides back on and go into a new branch. As it's unlikely you'll be in a branch the same as the RN you'll have to start that branches training at the bottom, although it shouldn't take you too long to move onwards and upwards, depending on how much effort you put in.

As previously stated you definitely keep your GCB's.

You will get the opportunity to have a bit of an aquaint, or at least a chat about all of the branches with someone in that specialisation and all being well, get your pick of the branches. I would suggest you sidle up to one of the old and bold from each branch and have a chat at the bar and maybe even someone fairly new to things to get a different perspective.

Good luck!

Bight your lip, do the new entry bit in unit. I am sure you will end up teaching them all you know. You probably will have forgetten more than they will ever learn. Only when we get more people joining like your self will the situation change.

Now stop asking questions of Faceless Wonders on the internet and go do some thing!

ps. You will keep your badge and get a medal after your second one but before you get your third. How mad is that!

You will also get a new number. I've had three!

Chippys-Party,

I would suggest that if you do not have to undertake basic again then there will be no need whatsoever for you to sit in a new entry class wearing those pretty new entry tabs.

Any training you do need to get you into the swing of things can probably be given by an oppo.

The only things that i can see which may be different from regulars is the paperwork. Pick your branch, get your initial training completed and voila.

hookyh - can you expand on why you think the bloke would have to do any in unit new entry when the RNR doesn't deem it necessary for him to complete basic again. The in unit new entry package is structured to prepare a newbie for their two weeks at RALEIGH. If he doesn't have to do RALEIGH, then where's the use in doing the in unit package?

No stokers at Eaglet; I'd be surprised if there were any at KA (there may be a few kicking round the RNR as NE instructors & so on, but it's not a branch open to the Reserve, & as such there is neither the requirement nor any training).

There used to be a few at the sea going units that used to have ships, but as you say not an open branch which is a shame really because its a shortage branch with a lot of ex stokers not wanting to join the upperdeck sentry branch or whatever its called now :?

Try reading it again, but I will take you though it hand in hand "i found most RNR" thats most but not all. "not ex mob" meaning they have been full time navy service "knobs" says it all really but even ex RN have knobs which you have just proved. :knob:
