For anyone thinking of becoming a navy diver

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. Much like many others who are thinking of joining the mine clearance diving branch in the navy, I've been doing a lot of research.

    I stumbled across a show that unfortunately could only be viewed in Australia, so i put it off. A week later i stumbled again on it on youtube, which was quite useful.

    I've only watched a tiny bit of the first episode, and i don't know the differences between the Australian course and the UK one (Feel free to point them out) But it should be useful for anyone thinking of a career in diving. Theres 4 episodes, so a couple of hours of watching.

    Its in 10 minute parts, so just click the next part to the right in the suggestions.

    Heres the first part: Australian Navy Divers 1 (1 - 3) - YouTube

  2. Nice find.
  3. Thanks for the link renavon. The aussies are pretty hardcore, having a ten day equivalent to the PEDA! I do think that their clearance divers have more of a SF orientated role though as opposed to British MCDs, who are obviously not SF. Hence the crazy aptitude test/marathon.
  4. No worries, also i would recommend the book 'Diver' by Tony Groom. He was a Mine Clearance diver in the falklands war. Obviously not exactly the same as now, but still an extremely interesting book
