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. Hello guys and gals. Do any of oyu know how hard it is to become a regulator, after you've been in the Navy for the 3 years and decide that you want to become one? Any helpful advice will be appreciated.

    You need to be able to read OR write, the ability to do both will disqualify you.

    If you can walk and talk at the same time without falling over this could also be a barrier.

    The author John Winton describes the Branch as being the last refuge for the inane and illiterate.

    :lol: :lol: :p
  3. You also need a complete sense of humour failure and the obligatory removal of all common sense brain parts.... :D
  4. please excuse lack of knowledge, but whats a regulator?
  5. Future_ET can you not tell by the remarks? Lol. From what I know, it's the equivelent to the Naval Police. Like Royal Military Police but in the Navy.

    Edited for c**p grammer.
  6. Being a regulator is like being a PTI, you just have to be a complete f*ck up in your source branch and you have got it made.... :wink:
  7. billy no mates is a good qualifiction cos u aint gonna have any afterwards :twisted: :evil: :idea:
  8. Oh right, is it a feckers job then? Chef who burns beans, or the clerk who can't read?
  9. They are wannabe cops but worse, I know a copper who had some regs on a course and all the cops did was take the piss out of them for a week.
    Imagine being a copper but having to live with the people you shat on and rat out. It's a "special" job for "special" people..
  10. Whats a clerk? dont we have writers anymore? Oh the crushers ,bless em,wanting to be one ,should automatically,ban you from being one. Sitting back waiting for the reggie shit to come in.
  11. it would be interesting to know if any crushers have friends , the only decent one i ever knew was uncle tom , fmaa wilkinson , run ya if ya needed it , but a good bollicking when required , but a genuinely nice man
  12. I heard they were ditching the name 'Regulator' and were going to call them something else. Besides the obvious of course. When I was last down at Whale Island doing an ISSC, they had their own tables in the dining room and bar because nobody wanted to mix with them and they only had themselves to talk to. Sad bastards really.
  13. Absolutely right, Tom was the Fleet Joss on the last commission of the old Ark. What a gentleman.
  14. So... it's social suicide to even mention, ever, that you ever thought about putting yourself forward for the job then? Oh well. Might stick with Seamen Specialist for the career then.
  15. Is he the one in the "Sailor" series?
  16. yup thats him a real freind
  17. They actually call themselves 'Service Police' these days. But they are still the same unliked, rat pack, festering dob their sister in type people who left what little brain they had at Whale Island.

    Oh, did I mention I do NOT like them. ;-)
  18. If you have a sadistic streak then becoming a Crusher should be you life's aim. :twisted: If on the other hand you actually like people and don't want to inflict unnecessary suffering on people, steer clear!

    They're no longer at Whale Island. They're now at MOD Southwick Park (aka Dryad) along with the Military Police and RAF Police.

    I bet that place is a barrel of laughs.....Talk about a snake pit!
  20. Am actually feeling a little bit sorry for the regs, having to train along side the redcaps and snowdrops my gawd.
    At least regulators were human once before they opted out of the human race but the others!
