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. Hi, having used the search facility and finding nothing, i would just like an answer to this question. As a former pomem who is now a poet, am i (once eligible for promotion) in the same promotion pool has tiffs who have preserved rights or am i in a pool of the newly educated ETs. Drafty says one thing and the branch manager says another. As we know each as their own agenda as to what they say. Many thanks Tirak.

    P.S Great Forum
  2. Poet? That was rubbish, none of it rhymed.
  3. Ha Ha!!!

    Thanks for making me laugh Monty.
  4. Tiffs with preserved rights aren't in a pool for promotion. They jump through whatever hoops are required, and when eligible are promoted. You will be in the same pool as all other POETs who don't have preserved rights. That includes the odd tiff who, like a mong, didn't take advantage of their preserved rights within 2 years of eligibility.

    There are those that rhyme and those who don't. Thus we have POET(A):

    But the Navy cultivated Wanking
    So now I am not a Banker
    But only a ******!

    Whereas POET(B) might have put it this way:

    I wanted to enter, but
    The Navy I entered
    Encouraged me to
    be a

    POET(C) by way of contrast might have simply put:

    Shall his preface be the letter:
    B or W?
    I chose the latter.
