RNR Intake

Discussion in 'Royal Naval Reserve (RNR)' started by scousehillier, Oct 9, 2008.

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 know some people on here want to drip to all unsundry about how life is bad and I can take that .

    I have seen the promo dvd of the RNR, BUT what is life like in the RNR?
  2. ...and sundry...
  3. Nice one Guzzler, had your 3 tins have we?
    now for a more informed reply.....
  4. Calm down, calm down.

    Sorry but that was so incredibly dim I couldn't resist.
  5. Beimg a Scouser I ain't gonna bite Guzzler...but i ain't dim so please give me a more educated response than previous.
  6. If Guzzler won't do it, allow me ....

    Life in de RNR is great though innit
  7. What you make of it scousehiller. if you go in with a keen can do attitude you'll be enabled to succeed, especially with the resources in HMS Eaglet (Your local unit).

    Go in with a negative outlook and you'll probably leave with one.

    The RNR can provide you with some opportunities you and those you know, will never get to experience elsewhere. You'll get paid to do AT or at the very least heavily discounted for long courses. There's also an active social element. Oh and an annual bonus (bounty) tax free.

    Downsides- Pay/entry into service can be a slow process sometimes not, you have to do a lot of classroom based activities before you can do the more exciting things (train into basic role).

    I'm sure others will add to the list however it's best to remember that whilst this is a fantastic opportunity and can lead to a lot of amazing things it is a paid job and therefore subject to the same administrative headaches you'll have anywhere.

    You do get to decide when you work, bar vital events e.g. rememberence day, yearly review (Co's divisions) etc. And that flexibility is excellent.

    Give it a go, come back and tell us what your impressions were? It's always good to get fresh perspectives.
  8. Cambria its a knockout. slap me slap me etc etc

    Arrrrrrr life in blue suit and a tent in cambria. LOVELY
  9. Again give it a go, get to the clinic, let us know... :twisted:
