I'm an idiot

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. Hi,

    So i passed my SIFT interview yesterday, (Hooray) and was given an AIB booking form. Which in my jubilation, I have left on a bus. Is there an online copy of this that I can get a hold of or will i have to contact the OCLC?

    All i have to say is thankfully future offiers are judged on potential, otherwise i'd be fresh out of luck.

    Cheers

    Brilliant! Contact your AFCO.

    (I assume you'll be issued with a encrypted laptop and working in Main Building in no time...) :wink:

  3. I was hoping for a memory stick with the nuclear codes on, much easier to lose!

    Be serious, for God's sake! Memory sticks?! :shock:

    We use Post-It notes folded and tucked into the back of our ID card holders these days...

  5. My apologies for trivializing the matter; in my defense, Navy tech is highly classified, especially something that advanced!

    'the bus.......'

    Do you have a shell suit picked out for the interview?
     
  7. How very dare you. I have much higher standards.

    Beer stained string vest and jogging bottoms for myself thankyouverymuch.

    A well known former First Sea Lord has form for leaving stuff of interest loafing. It didn't harm his career so don't fret.

    PM your email address if you don't want to display your Flag Officer potential prior to AIB. I'll send you an electronic copy if you wish tomorrow morning.

  20. That is a fair point, can i bring shaun on board with me as a perk of being an officer? I'll be mighty lonely otherwise. Or will me wellies only see action on shore leave like everyone else?
