Hi all, I've got my AIB coming up in June and was wanting to find out a bit more about what exactly life as an officer in the RN constitutes. All the literature/brochure material seems to concentrate on what training you go through in the first 2/3 years (iI'm looking at specialising as a warfare officer in the Surface Fleet). But after the first year at BRNC, what is life like? Is it usually 6 months on shore, 6 months at sea? What happens when you're based on shore- I assume it's mainly training courses/lots of people taking their leave? What about life at sea as an officer? What's an average day? Living conditions on/off shore etc? Sorry for so many questions! I'll be sure to mention this site when the inevitable question comes up at the AIB, 'What have you done to find out more about your chosen career in the Navy?'! It is a great site by the way - seems to give you more of an insight into the RN than a whole stack of careers brochures! Thanks in advance.
