Officer Numbers

Discussion in 'Joining Up - Royal Navy Recruiting' started by WarLog, Jan 7, 2009.

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. Does anyone have relatively up to date numbers on Officer recruitment?

    How many are recruited (roughly) each year, how many in each branch etc.

    I'm hoping to join as either Warfare or Logistics, but apparently there is a greater need/intake for Warfare...

    Also, similar to another thread, in what ways will the current economic situation affect Officer recuitment?
     
  2. No more pink gins in the Wardroom now there is a credit crunch on. Neat gin only. Or Gin and IT on Fridays, but with Lidl's Czek Tonic. No more Scwepps.
     
  3. Grat issue Seikos to be replaced by a Russian knockoff of a Mickey Mouse, he points to the injustices suffered by the working proletariat, you buy batteries, and a strap, at slops. Owing to restrictions on fuel budgets and flying hours, pilots on initial flying training will be forced to turn their hands backwards, placing a circle formed from index finger and thumb on each eye, and run around shouting "dagga dagga dagga, weoooooooowwwwww".

    No change there then.

    They no longer get given canapes on their first AFCO visit.

    There is also talk that we won't be able to call them "Sir" as often & instead have to call everyone "mate" instead.
     
  5. ...to which the acceptable replies will be "shag", "dad", "shipwreck" or "me ol' bucket o' sh1t"

    In fact, now you mention it, nothing's changed really...
     
  7. Marine Officers Assistants/Stewards to be reassigned to real jobs. Ossifers have to serve themselves from a buffet style eatery (Even on Mess Nights!!) do their own kit and turn down their own beds before retiring for the night and finally they'll have to buy themselves an alarm clock and wake themselves up.....Oh the horror!!
