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. As a DE officer do you get promoted to sub-Lt after your fleet time training?
  2. Direct Entry meaning degree or no degree?

    No Degree you get promoted form Midshipman to Sub-lt on completeing two years seniority as Midshipman.
  3. yea, no degree
  4. does you time at BRNC count or does the tow years start from passing out?
  5. Well, i'm looking at my forms for BRNC i received today, and it says as i have stated above. Sub-lt are promoted to lt on completeing 3 years seniority as sub lt. Further promotion is on a credit basis.

    No degree, you enter service as midshipman with no seniority unless u have HNC or equivalent, whereby you have 1 years seniority.

    Hope that helps
  6. thanks yea it does, just need to know if you time at BRNC counts for your two years as a midshipman
  7. Yes i believe it does!
  8. you've just made my day, thanks
  9. Why's that?

    Fcuksake, I used to aspire to be a L/Cpl.

    When you/if get to BRNC you'll get divided into "Groups" these are strictly 32 people. Within each "group" you will be sub divided again into "table groups" these are 8 people strong. So you have 4 "table groups" with the left over number in a temporary rolling role of "Group co-ordinator".

    The Group Co-ordinater is temporary role and each student is accessed on their performance and will be expected to complete this role at least 3 times whilst a cadet at BRNC.

    Within each table group there is a strict, yet, changing hierarchy. One week you may find yourself the mustard monitor, the next you are the salt sentry. Each and every role is different but all are important.

    Enjoy Your time at BRNC, take your time "in the Piccalo barrel" with a "pinch of salt", smile when the "Chips are down".

    Just remember, The junior ranks, especially the Marines are there to help you.

    Best of luck. :dwarf:

    emm...what the hell does this mean?...or do i really want to know
