Royal Navy Handbook...

#1
I read in one of the threads that the 'Royal Navy Handbook' is very useful to read. I attempted to order a copy from Amazon, but a couple of weeks later recieved an email from them saying they can't get a copy/dispatch till August 2011 (which obviously is no good as i have my interview not far away.)

I've looked on ebay and various other websites, no such luck...

Does anyone know how i can get a copy of this? (see below)

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Royal-Navy-Handbook-Definitive-Guide/dp/1844860949/ref=pd_rhf_p_t_1

Edit: Y'know at the afco (i forgot to ask last visit) they have the 'Navy news' magazine which are £2 , are they for people to go in and buy, or do i need to subscribe to get them or something...?

The book hasn't been released yet. I believe there was an out-dated version, which is no longer sold. Also, you can subscribe to Navy News, here: https://www.navynews.co.uk/CMS/Shop/ProductDetails.aspx?ProductID=4 ...or go to WH Smith.

I was told by my CA that if I was ever in the area I was able to pop into the AFCO and grab a copy of the Navy News for free. So i guess it should be the same for you.

Or just do what BreathingOutOnTheWayUp says and read it online :wink:

You already do, the afco refused to pay my parking expenses when I last visited them. As you can imagine I was outraged and told them that when I was in the sea cadets..... :wink:
