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, looking for a forum featuring wives partners of submariners. My husband is currently at Raleigh and will join the submariners once all training is complete, we're noobs as he is only end of week one basic, I am aware there is still a very long way to go, not interested in trolls/haters/being patronised or whatever. looking for people to chat to, we are brand new to the life and I don't know what to expect, I know deployment is the most talked about in the emotional sense, but I was wondering what else to expect as he progresses, thanks
  2. firstly, he will have to successfully complete phase 1 training. (10 weeks)
    He will then have to successfully complete phase 2 training. (depends on what branch he wants to be in)
    He will then have to successfully complete SMQ training (god knows how long that is these days)
    and THEN he will be a submariner. Plenty of hurdles to get over.

    Life as a qualified submariner will vary depending on his trade (again) and class of submarine

    for example. If he joins V-class. You will get severely limited options of contacting him at sea.
    If he joins a T/A-class. His time away could be a great deal more but you will have greater chance of contact when he is away etc
  3. Hi @Deroglitter. If you click on the "Families" tab at the top you may find what you're looking for.
    PS You will need to click on forums first
  4. Plenty of various WAG groups on FB
