RN Police

Hello all,

I have a couple of questions with regards to Royal Navy Police that I’m hoping someone may be able to assist with.

Firstly is anyone able to give some indication as to what happens at the 2 day RNP Specialisation Selection Board which is held at HMS Excellent prior to PRNC(R)?

Secondly, how long approximately have people been waiting to join as RN Police? I know that they don’t recruit them very often and wondered how long people have been waiting to join.
Hi! Unfortunately don’t know the answer to the first part... but my partner applied July 2019 for RNP and at the start of this January, he was given a joining date for basic training for July this year. He was told from the very start that he would have a 2 year wait and it was exactly that! Hope that helps?!

On Junglie squadron we had berets way back 1970, metal clip badge. As stated, only baby Tiffs, (hack spit) wore the red cloth things!!! In fact, looking back, Rating Aircrew had berets pre 70's. Not the posh shaped variety of todays modern lot!!

I thought those berets were issued as emergency spare landing pads? ;)

About right. I even had a kit muster because wanting to look 'steely' I ripped out the lining and shrunk the outer material. Defacing pussers kit, naughty boy - take a kit muster!!!! &%@*ing Reggies!!!!!!
