I'm back from my PRNC - Here's a few tips for anyone yet to do it!

That's very flattering of you - will have to make sure there's some gen dit, 12 clips, for'd assist action going on for next time ;)
Haha. No all due seriousness, the visit was a good insight. We has a subby as our guide telling us about the under water sonar etc, it was interesting. We just couldn't visit much of the ship because hanging wires and maintenance stuff. I enjoyed the course and visit especially, it was probably the highlight.

The guides were brilliant, we had officers. I'm saying the ship being in refit was boring
If you feel 'visiting' a ship whilst in refit is boring, you'll be in for a shock in the future. It shouldn't have been boring, you got a tour of a warship an opportunity few people get.

I've been on previous naval ships which were fantastic. I've been on a different 23 too which was much more modern. I'm entitled to an opinion.

No one questioned whether you were entitled to express your opinion or not. Just came off as having a negative attitude before your career has even begun. Keep the negativity building up for OST.

How can you clarify any negativity, Trig90? You have absolutely no idea about my feelings towards my future career and you're in no place to assume it. I suggest if you have a problem with what I said, that you take your comments elsewhere because frankly this post I initially wrote was planned to be informative and useful. You're making it something that it is not.

Glad I could help you, mate! Keep yourself fit and work out to the best of your ability. The time will go fast if you keep yourself occupied. Best of luck with your application, you'll be fine!

Whenever an RN warship visits a UK port, there are very often ship visits arranged for local schools and potential recruits in liaison with the nearest AFCO.

It's appreciated these visits are often a bit of a chore for an already busy operational warship but they really are invaluable. One thing that has really impressed me in recent years is the excellent quality of the Ships Company detailed as tour guides.

There was a time when you could expect a surly, disaffected AB who unwittingly ensured his draft would be extended due to the amount of people no longer wishing to join. I've been hugely impressed by the individuals (often YO's or ABs) who I've had the pleasure of meeting - a significant & noticeable change for the better.

With regard ships being visited whilst in refit, far from ideal for all concerned however it gives a realistic & balanced view, reflecting the fact that the job is not one long pleasure cruise. (Unless you are a woo).

"Erm, I got it in a bowl of porridge one morning, which was embarrassing for all involved""

Only because you were having a cheeky breakfast with the Commodores daughter at the time? ;-)

Frankly I couldn't care less about your feelings towards your future career. As for me taking my comments elsewhere? I'm entitled to expressing my opinion as well surely not? As to being informative and useful, theres already another post like this pinned. So I'd most likely saying you were just fishing for attention........... Then again that's just my opinion so please don't comment about that pleaseeeeeeee.

Can we disregard this post?
haha I can tell I'm never going to live that one down. In all fairness it was covering up a pretty stupid question.

Oh dear me, you sound like a right stiff one, don't you? It's not fishing for attention you pedantic, obnoxious little slime. It's an informative post and if your complete lack of basic educational understanding fails you in the concept of reading something in the way it is intended, then frankly, your lack of appreciation is rather concerning. What I suggest, is to take your flat, worthless back end down to Tesco Express, buy yourself a box of beers and your fix of nicotine, and drink yourself stupid. You can express your freedom, of course you can, but your immaturity and unnecessary attitude isn't what this website is about and you're the only person on this post acting the way you are. So, write your reply and use your inadequate brain to string together as many offensive things as you can, whilst I sit here and wait. Good night to you.
