Lol hi, thats the fastest i've ever been accuesed of mental incompetance before!
My story: Always wanted to join the forces but didnt for a number of boring reasons, then got to old, am trained and volunteer as a special constable, new age requirements in the navy mean Im no longer to old but seems like a waste of training and experience to do something totaly unrelated so was wondering if there was a way I could utilise those skills. Guess the answer is no though! :wink:
in all seriousness if you are thinking about it, go to your nearest AFCO and see the lads/lasses in there but as far as I am aware you have to join as a bog standard able seaman and then learn how to be one, not sure about about this bit but I think there's a min time limit you have to serve before they'll let you become a reggulator, so I don't think there's a direct entry option but willing to be corrected on that one :? The reggies course is aledgedly hectic coz as well as all the civi laws we are ruled by (shiver!) The NDA, but check the RN site/ AFCO for more info.
As I understand it all Service Police Training is being moved to the old HMS Dryad at Southwick near Pompey and will be standard training for Crabs Pongoes and Pusser. About direct entry into the branch that question is way above my salary level.
Partner's eldest son is RMP and completed his training at Dryad and all service police are trained there
Wonder if the Jack Blair van still stocks the crap suits for the 'undercover' reggies in the SIB?
