    Basically, you will need to question everything. When asked to do something, question it. This is how they select Officers from the ranks. It shows that you have an inquisitive mind and that you are up for a debate. If you keep quiet and say nothing, you will forever be a sheep.
  11. ..and any of the Regulating staff that meet you at the station are addressed as "mate" and not "sir".
  12. It's a bit like a jigsaw. You get the whole picture at the end of your career.
  13. i understand what u mean but my inquiry was more towards practical and discipline at HMS Raleigh

  14. Being a disciplined service, what do you reckon it'll be like?
  15. You will find that practical discipline is exercised, as are disciplinary practices. You may find that after a while discipline is practically a non-event, but practically everything requires some sort of discipline...
  16. well to b honest i think it will b tough, on the hand i dont hav a insider who could tell me what i have to do each day in order to keep up the standard of the royal navy
  17. A practical answer, from practical polto. Practically.

  18. You don't need an insider. You'll be told what the standards are and you are to maintain them. It's what the instructors are there for. You don't need inside information.

    It's all rum, bum and baccy. Have you never read Hornblower?

    In any event, why do you need an insider? Peoples perceptions differ. What one person finds easy, the other will find hard.
  20. AN insider could b used for the special techniques the navy use such as on ironing, polishing boots, folding clothes, organizing kit.
