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 guys

    bit new to this site

    I am 24 and wish to join as an ET but do not know weather to go the fleet air arm route or ET(WE) as i do not know which branches are recuiting at present

    Plus my careers advisor has been a little less than helpful on this subject

    Any advice from lads in the branch would be very much appreciated

  2. All branches are recruiting. However, there are always waiting times for joining.

    AET - 3 months

    ET(ME) - 6 months

    ET (WE) - 8 months

    If you fancy Subs then you can half the times.

    Hope this helps

    Slim: not at all - if I hadn't said it, you would have... :lol:
  6. Bstrd you beat me to it. :thumright:
  7. rather than looking at waiting times you need to be thinking about what you want to be spending your days/nights/weekends/shoreleave fixing. im sure some of the other guys will be able to help you out with more in-depth honest job descriptions than what you have been told. but dont just go for the shortest waiting time because for the sake of three months now you could spend your whole RN life wishing you had chosen something else.
  8. fcking 8 months for ETWE now! I waited nearly 2 bloody years! And I didn't even end up being one!
  9. You in the navy yet?
  10. Hurry up before all the ships are scrapped and the crabs have nicked the aircraft. !!!!!!!
  11. Yes and have been for some time, thankyou.
