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. I have my eye test and interview in a few weeks, I am applying for SEAMAN SPECIALIST. My optition told me that my eye sight meets VA3, which ia standard 3 on that form we are given for the eye test. Does any one know if this is ok for what I want to do? What does the eye test involve? Do they just ask you if you can read the charts and thats it or will they use the eye sight machines

    As I am short sighted, the rest of my vision is perfect and I am not color blind or anything

    I know there has been a lot of quesions on eye sight, but I coulnt find much on this in the search forum.

    My eye sight fits in VA3 and I passed for the Royal Marines but it depends what Specialist Seaman involves.

    Why not ring your AFCO?

    All Warfare trades are usually VA2 or better.
     
  10. From what I have heard seaman Specialist is a fairly new trade in the navy, this is possibly why no one really knows what the eye standered is. I dont know if this is true someone please correct me if I am wrong

    I'm feeling a strange sense of Deja Vu here..... Although I can't find the original post... Ah anyway.....

    From what I understand anybody who falls into band 3 on their eye test will be ineligible for entry as a Seaman Specialist as they are required to carry out watches. Obviously poor eyesight will be detrimental to your ability to carry out this task, mainly as it affects your nightvision. I believe you will be told what positions are still open to you if you do fall into band 3, of course these will also be dependent on you having qualified for them during the Recruitment Test.......... AHEM

    Hope this helps.

  13. Because they could smell the garlic chomping froggies on the wind - didn't need a sharp lookout! Plus the rum also aided their performance!
