  1. Hello all,

    I finally got my joining date thorough for Raleigh, 25th November and I can't wait, 17 weeks from now and i'm counting them down. Got the RNAC on 17th September so should be lots of fun, i'm well excited.

    I'm goin in as WS(S/T)(SM) so I was just wondering if there were any other trainee submariners on here that would like to share any advice.

    Cheers
     
  2. Please get into the habit of explaining the acronym`s before you use them.

    Warfare Specialist?S/T? Submarines.so S/T is ?

    My bad, sorry about that, please allow me to apologise. To give it its full title, i'm going in as a Warfare Specialist (Sonar/Tactical) (Submarines).

    Displaying Dolphins that you haven't earned is frowned upon.

    Cheers for that janners, I absolutely totally agree with you on that, you shouldn't wear or display owt that you haven't earned.

    Its like these people on here that you read who have been and got Marine tattoos and stuff when they haven't even started training, its ridiculous.

    Anyone who finds that offence is in serious need of a life!

    Congratulations! I'm surprised you're joining up so late. I thought the waiting list for submariners was very short. I'm waiting to join as an AET but I haven't had my starting date yet. I'd imagine it'll arrive next week and will probably mention mid-november as my start date so we'll probably cross paths.
     
  10. I join on the 11th pending everything goes ok, so no doubt we will cross paths.

    Helios, i'm quite surprised to be joining so late as well to be honest, my advisor at the AFCO said it might be September / October that I might be joining so i'm disappointed to have to wait til late November. The flip side to that though is that it gives me stacks of time to get fully prepared, by the time my RNAC arrives, i'll be halfway to Raleigh so its all good.

    When you've earned then you may be in a position to make that sort of comment.

    He is going to be a new entry AET Maxi, if He gets there, so is obviously well versed in the way things are done

    Not quite TomO. He will be streamed in Phase Two either Sonar or Tactical...the latest term for SSM and TSM (formerly UC's & RP's).

    I'm joining on the same day mate as a Warfare Specialist Tactical/Sonar Submariner, excited but nervous if I'm being honest.
