hi all
I'm going endex as my SSM would say! as a mate remined me:-
It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat." by Theodore Roosevelt
I'm not saying the RN is going to be a blood bath! I will know that I have tried and I won't have any what ifs or if only's hanging over my head even if it does or does not work out! as for my partner well we wil have to take it a step at a time!

Good decision, look to the future and enjoy the time you spend in RN.No matter how long you spend in it will be an exeperience.The navy is changing all the time and to be honest noone knows what the future will hold but the great people and the navy sense of humour will always exist in the fleet.Good luck in your new career.
 
All the best, hope it goes well for you and you find what you are looking for.

Keep in touch, as you will have seen you will get plenty of good advice, most of it conflicting, but equally most of it well meant.
