As every rating should be aware, they are free to submit notice to quit in the first six months, after serving four weeks. Thereafter, for most branches, the individual must then complete their phase two training and then serve 30 months return of service until eligible to submit 12-months notice to quit.I've finally got onboard after a year and a half of training and being on holdover at port and after a couple weeks I've decided this naval life is not for me. I do not see the point is hanging on an extra two years for a career I have no investment in and want to get started on a home one as soon as possible as I'm not young as it is. What's the best course of action to leave service?
My DO is a bit of an old school hard arse stuck in the times, doesn't really make time to talk
It certainly will.Colombian marching powder off the CO's desk ought to do it.

It certainly will.
As long as the individual doesn't intend working after discharge, an administrative discharge for gross misconduct will not unduly affect their future plans. Likewise doing a runner is another tried and tested method. Snag is the lack of a future state pension, an arrest warrant and frozen pay account can be a bit of a bummer. Both also put the kibosh on emigration prospects in many cases.
Chaps [multiple] who worked for me some time ago all tried that gag - it did indeed accelerate their departure from the RN, with a short stop in a bijou bespoke hotel, but it also hugely impeded their ability to gain meaningful employment in any firm where trust and reliability was valued.
I know it was probably meant tongue in cheek....
I never knew, I waited 24 yrs then they kicked me outInclined to see this as a wind-up so I'll not bite as it is beyond belief that even the dumbest scrote imaginable would still be well aware of his/her obligations regarding return of service at each stage of training and service.
