Red_ said:good luck Creddly in the RN, im suppsosed to be in week 6 of basic at the mo but i have been stonehoused ive hurt my foot but hopefully i will be back in training soon.
Anyway Good luck again
It's such a shame - and it was only two weeks to passing out am I right?
I hope your injury heals very soon.
Squirrel said:Very well done Creddly and good luck , I was wondering where you'd got to.
lol thanks Squirrel. I'm always here, just not always posting.
Since I'm a Navy newbie, I doubt my advice would do any good, so the only thing I can post is information about my application and up until now, nothing had happened.
Will keep you posted.

Try volunteering to paint the "X" on the back of the sheep over there in Wales!!?? (Sorry Creddly, couldn't resist that, and you will not understand that unless you look at another thread on Diamond Lil's) :grin:
Lol no worries Stripey, I'm become used to it from my family in England whenever I visit them. I'm mostly English anyway.
slim said:Credders, If you don't manage to find work it is possibly worth your while trying to get on a maths and English course at your local college of knowledge. You never know its possible that you may obtain GCSE passes at grade C or above. This would certainly help get the AET or CT position in the RN.
Whatever you do best of luck
Thanks again for the advice Slim. I actually visited the local Library today as there are Computer Courses running there every night. You can learn up to level 3 on CLAiT and ECDL. I'm hoping to pass a couple before I get my main interview. Hopefully with them and a job, it'll look good.
The only place that does the GCSE Maths and English are the local Colleges (Coleg Gwent) and it's too late to start now. I'd have to wait until September - by that time I hope I've at least had my main interview lol.

Before reading this I looked it up and a few others. I'm drinking a cup of 'wet' as we speak :grin:
TattooDog said:Well done Creddly! Hope the job hunting goes well & it doesn't take you too long to join the RN.
Thanks TattooDog. I've got a couple of jobs I'm applying for tomorrow. But they're CV applications. In other words, they'll look at mine and throw it straight in the bin. lol
Oh well, I've got to keep trying. I won't give up! :twisted:
I hope the Naval men don't really descend to that level of desperation! lol
I can understand having your own duvet cover is a nice touch, but crusty socks... :shock:
Nutty said:slim said:Great posting Credders, Looks like your well written letter did the trick so its not only us old farts on RR who like to see well written English.
Best of luck with everything, and I hope you get your choice of trade
Slim or as we say in Espanol "Delgado"
No its Old Pharts in Recruiting Offices who also have a hankering for the English as she is wrote as well.
See never ever throw a bit of paper away, one day it will come in handy. Hope all goes well for you
Remember the famous Del Boy episode? "Always keep receipts".
Seriously, I'm glad I didn't through these away.
Can't believe that I've grown 3 inches in the last 3 years either.
I thought I'd stopped growing! lol
Thanks anyway nutty. Will give it my all! :mrgreen:
