Promotion time scale

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. I'm currently looking at joining as an AC but was just interested to know about promotion time scales. I understand that it will be different for each individual, due to picking up relevant experience that obviously takes time and a number of differing posts. However can anyone give me a rough idea of how long it would take to get from AB to PO?
  2. What's an AC
  3. His oppo is DC

    AC is HC in "new money".

    Promotion timescales are not promulgated as it will inevitably vary. Most branches can theoretically achieve LH in 4 year(ish) and PO in another 4 (ish) if you pull your finger out.

    "Monty_La_ Doo-lally", uses this branch as his cover for his covert STC ops shenanigans, but may well be able to peer into his crystal ball & give a more accurate guess.

  7. I think they currently have some connection

  8. You will be telling me next that they are related to Coulomb some stuffing great number of electrons, where

    P = 1J/S

    P= (J/C) x (C/S)

    P= v x I

    P = number of Watts

    Magic this science stuff init

  9. I would add the ish bit is all the possible variables, how good you are, how good your bosses are, chance, right place right, who you Piss-off and how much S**T you get into etc, in some branches you could take a lot longer as there is little or no promotional movement

  10. Innit indeed, Don`t understand it ( not my field of study ) but impressive
  11. Came across it in Collingrad in 74 then repeated a few times until understood, as with a lot of training not used that often in the real world, occasionally used on some defects.

    Best use was to calculate the smallest fuse rating for appliances and CCT's at home to try and stop the kids blowing it up, I never did show my eldest son where I hid the fused spur to the attic, and only gave him a 2amp fuse to his sockets.
  12. Although I am ( was ) an engineer I stay away from electrical stuff much to dangerous for my liking:eek:mg:
  13. The only thing I avoid is gas as getting that wrong really screws your day up
  14. After leaving the mob. As a civvy , One of my main tasks was writing sop`s for working in dangerous areas gas, explosive, radiation etc
