How are you selected for SF?

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. I want to go SF eventually but I have no-idea about how I would express my interest or be selected once I have passed the commando course.

    If the information in question is sensitive, then I apologise and I will remove this post.
     
  2. Standby for the usual abuse... ^_^;
     
  3. Transfer to the RN, volunteer for submarines, earn your dolphins - I see the Submarine Service is now officially classed as "special forces" on the RN Website. :)
     
  4. Yeah but thats "special" as in "mummies special little angel", or, "your son needs to go to special school" ;)
     
  5. Lamri - thats a bummer - and here was me telling my kids I'd be eligible to join the Special Forces club. Thanks for the enlightenment :)
     
  6. How far are you into your CDO course?? I suggest you concentrate on that before considering anything else as you technically need to serve 2 years GD before applying. I have seen guys go SF before this but this was in the mid 1990's and i believe this has changed.

    As i said get your
    lid first
     
  7. Good point, I suppose i'm being rather over ambitious here...
    I shall endevour to earn my green death. :thumright:

    Just another quick one though... Isn't the RM regarded offically as a special force?
     
  8. With a reply like this it is clear to me that you know very little about what the RM does. As i said before do the hard work first before endevouring to apply for anything else
     
  9. I'm not different, I'm special!
     
  10. I think he is too old to be the young lad who I heard of, seemed a bit shy and introverted to the rest of his fellow trainees, though well liked. Fast forward a couple of years, and he is seen at Poole, cutting about with the SBs.
     
  11.  
  12. do they now select from the band ?
     
  13. you need to have done 3 yrs service, so eddie stone told me. seems like flogging a dead horse, but i'd concentrate on passing training first
     
  14. After re-reading i've realised that I must come across as rather mouthy so my apologies for the "green death" comment, and also thanks for the swift kick *********** concerning this subject... consider my neck wound in. :oops:

    Also many thanks to those who offered advice.
