I am looking for further information from anyone who has deployed as an RNR element of P Squadron or has direct knowledge. Is it correct that the RNR element of it is now reducing in size? After joining the RNR is there a specific selection to become part of P Sqn? Whilst i understand that there are numerous branches RNR persons may join, can I still assume this selection would be quite difficult given that there is nearly 2000 RNR and soon to increase, with 36 places being reduced to 18 if a thread on this site is correct! I heared that once mobilised you usually spend 4 - 8 weeks away before returning to the UK. After alittle leave you get sent out somewhere else again and this goes on throughout your 6 months? Within the RNR this particular role sounds like it could be ok, but i dont want to join the RNR and just get put on a ship to clean etc. Is that a realistic possibilty though?
