Female Submariners

Discussion in 'Joining Up - Royal Navy Recruiting' started by Ruby8998, Jan 4, 2012.

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. Sat my RT in November 11, applied for HM. Seen now about the possibility of woman being able to apply to serve on Submarines.
    When would this be coming into effect? Read that volunteers already in the Navy will have the chance in 2013, but what about women applying to join the Navy. When will they actually start accepting applications.

    I was advised of a 36 month wait for HM, but i'm warming up to the idea of applying to be a female submariner.

    Thanks :)
  2. I am on the submarine board. You need to post a picture of yourself on here first. It will be in your favour.

  3. If you are not in the navy, you will not be able to apply for sm just yet. In a way, you've answered your own question. If you want to be in submarines, I would suggest also not joining the HM branch as there are none in submarines. Join a suitable branch/trade. Do your sea time on a grey thing to get some experience, then think about going SM.
  4. This is true...I know this to be a fact...

  5. This might actually seem a bone question, but does anyone know if fitness standards are going to be the same as on the targets? If so, is that wise for submarines?
  6. Want to be a submariner but applying to join as an HM?

    If you want to be a submariner thats the last branch you should be joining!
  7. To be fair to the OP the option of female submariner has only come about. If it was there before maybe she wouldn't have chosen HM.

    Try reading her post. She was asking if the option has started from recruitment process as now it's an option she is tempted.

    Spot on.

    Look at Logistics, Engineering (not Air) and Warfare Specialist.

    Direct Entry female submariners are not anticipated before 2014.
