Next time(IF there is one)Read the form first,then complete it in pencil and read thgrough then get an adult to read through as well,then if its all ok copy in ink.

Get another form. Or walk out in to your local woods deep enough that know one can hear and shoot yourself. The choice is yours i guess.

Go straight in as an officer, you already have the ability to ask stupid blindingly obvious fukcin questions!

I should think provided your writing is neat it will be OK. The capitals request will simply be to overcome any illegible hand writing.
But you could always pick up some more forms from your AFCO if it concerns you??

Even though there's a whole load of people trying to get in at the minute, remember, it's the RN, not the police your applying for.

If the navy can now afford to be that fussy then I wouldn't even bother asking for another copy of the forms and just put it down to experience.

The Mess Webley awaits.

Being a Navy site, and in a desperate attempt to divert attention away from the OP's unfortunate lack of intelligence, here is the Royal Navy issued Webley:


A semi-automatic unlike the revolver for the pongos (I suppose you could be relied upon to keep it clean). It would be more reliable to have a mess pencil sharpener.

I'm sure Special Needs types such as the OP would be given a one off Access All Area pass, with a simple map to the appropriate room, drawer and instructions on how to pull the trigger. :wink:

If you've already handed your application form in, in person I mean, not posted, the CA would have surely looked through it for mistakes and picked up on that and mentioned it. If you have not yet give it in, go to your AFCO explain what you've done and hopefully they'll give you another one

All (obvious and well - deserved) mockery aside:-

I worked in an AFCO for a year processing the worlds allocation of badly written application forms, and i NEVER threw any back for being written in lowercase or in ink other than black, unless the writing was so shockingly bad i couldn't decode it, at which point i rang the candidate up, told them to get their arse into the office and fill the form out in front of me. So i wouldn't REALLY worry about it

You're still a knobber tho......

Concur with Monty.

The good thing about the "black ink, capital letters thing" is that at least it gives us the heads up on the (Webley) calibre of the candidate at AFCOs.

Funnily enough the Defence Vetting Agency (DVA), who process the Security Clearance, have kittens if it's completed in blue ink, red ink, green ink, pencil or crayon (hence the fact not all RAF & Army trades get SC, unlike the RN). The DVA reckon their computer can only scan black ink & therefore send the Security Check Questionnaires back if they aren't in black ink - this reaches a peak on Fridays, I've noticed.

Presumably the DVA have yet to discover the marvellous new invention which changes the colour of the ink, as if by magic - it's called a photo-copier, I believe. :wink:

Good point, obviously the cost & repeated transfer via a highly reliable postage system cancel the risk.

According to my controller at the Kremlin the best way to dissiminate the unauthorised release of personal data, is to let loose a person with a commission, a service vehicle & a laptop.

Unfortunately, I don't make the grade on three counts.
