Hey I would like to join the RN as a clearance diver but I'm just wondering, can i join straight up as a clearance diver? And what would help me in becoming a diver? Also what are the medical req's?


Cheers

best job in the world if you get through basic but you also need a strong mind also to cope with all they throw at you
had 30 yrs of doing it and enjoyed every minute
keep at the fitness lots of mud runs get the legs strong
also just remember its not all nice clear water
you will see some very nasty sights but life goes on
good luck

Shaven legs, a good mirror, some expensive body lotion, hair-drier, subscription to GQ, plenty of hair-gel, some Lycra and the inability to tie knots would be a good start.

Yes; as a RN diver you will see some nasty sights (some would say horrific) but hey - if you want good-looking women you should raise your ambitions and join the Royal Marines.

The nastiest thing is trying to spend all that extra SSP! Bobby be prepared for loads of shit off people for being a diver too, but don't worry they love us really, don't you lads? Lads? Lads........................... ;-)

Also practice mincing around in a track suit all the time. It will help you during your time at bomb teams.

Only "them" do that (and STC obviously).

Four of 'Them' were practicing night time exits & re-entries in Gareloch in the early '70's.
Submarine ran into a salinocline and started into a fast drop taking the guys on the casing (who, if memory serves me well were plugged into the HP air main via RABA sets)
Skipper put his foot on the accelerator to get control. One survivor made it to surface. The other three were located by sonar and recovered by the Fleet Team within 48 hours.

BZ to the CD's for that one.

(but they are still a bunch of posing cnuts who richly deserve all the stick they get)
