Medical problem - you will be offered a choice of general service or outside.
Academic - you will be probably be discharged.
2. If you decide that submarines are not for you etc...
You will be discharged...you see the problem here is that everyone could in theory say that 'this' or 'that' isn't for them. You need to remember that this is a specific job you are applyinf for, not a 'try it first then buy it' sort of thing. Imagine if you were applying for a job at a supermarket - you would probably apply for a specific position/job. Once you'd got that job it would be doubtful that you'd be allowed to transfer to something else just because you didn't like it. They'd offer you the door...
I was pretty sure that if you joined as an ET (XXSM) then you have no rights to return to General Service. You canâ€™t return to something youâ€™ve never been. I believe itâ€™s different for branches like MAs as they are GS before being streamed MASM.
Flano have you watched warship and thought that looks quite fun? lol I was asked to go submariner at the AFCO first thing as he said they are crying out for them but Im still interested in seaman spec full stop.
This 'Warship' series about the big skimmer. Does anybody else get the impression that they've been told to stay out of the ops rooms and concentrate on the cookie boys (again) and trivia about relationships and the 'no touchy feely' rule!
It was good to see 'young' Mark Stanhope making his way in the world. I wonder what he thinks of being on board a target he so easily tore the bottom out of as a submarine CO. Having to pretend that yep they really are good at ASW must be galling!
I know it's edited but the gap between us and them was never so clearly demonstrated as when that that female S/LT decided that she'd had enough and said 'I don't want to play any more' and packed knicks, socks and dhoby gear in her grip and walked off the brow! If only it was that easy for the lads.....there'd be NO navy left to deploy!!!!
A friend who is a writer checked in a BR and there is no automatic right to return to general service after 5 years or time served after the Golden Hello.
In his words 'If you are a direct entry submariner, then you cannot return to GS because you have never been one' Those of us that have been in the RN for a few years have the right to return as we were all GS when we joined up.
SO what i am trying to say is if Mrs Elvis OH is planning on doing 5 years submariner and then going GS he may want to check the small print, he may have been misinformed.
