Official RNR Entry Date...what does this mean?

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. So I just got an email from the AFCO giving me an entry date!! I was only waiting on the security check to be done...does this mean I passed it? Or can they give you an entry date whilst still waiting on that? :eek:

    It means very little for RNR personnel. Most reservists seem to attest, get paid, wear a uniform, hold an ID card etc., well before they pass PJFT or gain SC nowadays. The entry date is simply a nominal start date but it matters not a jot as it's still possible to gain a start date before gainng SC but...failure to gain SC results in discharge.

  3. Thanks NS! So just called DBS to see if I could get an idea of what stage my SC was at...the guy I spoke to was very helpful and told me my clearance was "processed" on the 13th Feb. Does that mean it was issued? Or just put into the system? *so impatient*
  4. Ignore me! AFCO just got my SC in the post! :D
