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, I am joining as an HM.

    My security was passed in July, still waiting though.

    Two questions - anyone know how mcuh longer I will have to wait?

    And can anyone give me some info on what life is like as an HM?

    Cheers
     
  2. What the feck is a HM?????
     
  3. Yes, what is a HM???.....Human Muppet???
     
  4. Hydrology and meteorology specialist I am guessing?
     
  5. Yeah
     
  6. hi- and congrats!
    HM is a new branch created in the warfare family.
    It is a cross between the old SR and METOC branches
     

  7. Cant keep up with all these new branch titles , even though I still get Navy News every month ,

    Congratulations to the new HM , :?
     
  8. Source branch titles were much simpler- now you get bloody all sorts!
     
  9. I heard they were going to do that a while back, the Metoc's badge was changing, I had a friend who was the 'tester' for this. Didn't know it had gone through though.

    Welcome and good luck!
     
  10. hey niall. I know a guy whos going in a week after me next month. He is also going into the HM branch. he had to wait around 18months i think.
     
  11. Are you sure that's wise?
     
  12. If I ever make it as a Warfare Officer I hope to specialise as a HM too. I think it sounds like a fab job! Interacting with nature at its finest, surveying the oceans and coasts of the world, getting the chance (although a very slim one) to serve on HMS Endurance- what could be better?

    I have heard it described as the fluffy side of the Navy but you will leave with qualifications recognised as a civilian. People such as the BAS actively seek out people who trained in the RN.

    I think it sounds awesome, and if I get my commission I might be serving along side you one day in the not too distant future.

    Good luck!!
     
  13. I thought he was joining as Her Majesty!

    Cor, can you imagine the task book for that!

  15. His Majesty is ,

    Cornet Wales or Cornet Hewitt , :roll:
     
  16. I think it looks like a good area to work in.

    It's a pity that it takes so long to get a date, I feel like I've been waiting forever!
