RNR forum tagline

The RNR forum is currently tagged "Part of the Royal Navy but there are always separate issues to discuss ..." which was borrowed from the TA forum at our sister site when this place was set up.

Well, I don't know whether or not the TA is part of "the Army", but the RNR certainly isn't part of the Royal Navy though it is part of the Naval Service. Surely we can come up with something better?

Not wishing to sound like i've spat my dummy at the suggestion, but the official line now is that we 'are' now part of the navy.

All new i.d. cards say Royal Navy now too.

When I augment an exercise, it's with the Royal Navy, If I am called up to go to war it's with the Royal Navy. I serve on a ship that is commissioned and flys the White Ensign.

OF COURSE WE ARE PART OF THE ROYAL NAVY, YOU D**K HEAD. (Yes I am shouting at you)

And if you don't believe me give COMMARES a ring, he will leave you in no doubt!

I had some respect for you on this forum, but that has gone now.

Oh for God's sake, I'm not suggesting the RNR shouldn't be part of the RN; I am simply saying it hasn't happened yet, and we should think of a more imaginative tagline for the forum rather than lifting it off ArRSe.

There is a big difference between the WRNS and QARNNS, which were fully merged into the RN in 1993 and 2000 - and the RNR, which like the RM, RFA, RMR, RFR and RMAS remain separate entities within the Naval Service. If you want to bring the command into it, CMR has said that this is going to remain the case for the foreseeable future, because the RN is maintained by the Crown under the royal prerogative, whereas the RNR is a creature of statute, and is separately authorised, maintained and deployed under the Reserve Forces Acts.

But go ahead and believe what your ID card says if you like.

How do you define "merged" into the RN? The RNR now comes under 2SL's remit, does it not, uniform distinctions are on their way out and so forth, making whatever difference there is pretty seamless.

Is it not a bit pedantic to be differentiating between "Royal Navy" and "Naval Service" anyhow.

How about "Letting the RN look after business until war breaks out". We all know that when the sh1t hits the fan we have to come along and bail them out.

Perhaps you are in a postiton to question what CMR et al are saying? If so why post it here, simply tell him. Or are you afraid of being removed from your comfort zone?

Don't come down to the level some RNR bashing types have been stooping to, it'll only give them ammunition.

The RNR now comes under Fleet (WEF 26.01.06).

Come on people, we don't need this. Fare enough there used to be a gap between the RNR and RN which we are bridgeing, and doing it well. If talk like this goes on it can only do that process harm. Forget the old "Them and Us" mentality. Lets get on with the intergration so that we become one big happy family.
