Joining as a Holy Man

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. Do priests have to do basic training and have to pass fitness and weapons handling tests?
     
  2. This should be good
     
  3. Fixed that for you, no charge

  5. Do they get special pay to tempt young boys?
     
  6. Daily issue of a bag of Dolly Mixtures perhaps.
     
  7. I think crack would attract more youngiuns these days.

  14. Now, now lads.

    Enough of the Bish Bashing.
     
  15. I beg to differ, you're an extremely big tumescent one.

    If you can do the dance of the flaming *********, on stage, pissed, in front of your flock, then, and only then will become a legend. God finds many ways to tickle servicemen, starting a thread about the sky pilot probably isn't the cleverest pisstake, we hold them high in our strange little ways. **** with God and his main man and you're toast bro.

    [bite shield-up]Bish's can join up to age 50 so the phys standards are appropriate to age, as with all other branches. APWT is not compulsory for clergy so far as I'm aware, but a few have completed the All Arms Commando Course lugging a comparably weighted religious sceptre rather than an SA80.

    If your a left footer make sure that you can drink.
     
  20. All I do know about the job after speaking with the Bish on Ocean last year is that you have to have served as a parish priest for a minimum of 1-2 years first. No idea about the weapons bit. They may get a bit of basic training on how to clear a weapon but thats about it. I'm pretty sure that they are not allowed to carry Arms even in times of conflict. Geneva convention and all that.
