Your local Armed Forces Careers Office can give you a document which details how any offences affect your application. You may well be in luck if it is a spent conviction but the AFCO is the place to ask.

You say you have a couple of convictions but only detail one, it will very much depend on the seriousness and nature of the convictions

You need to be honest, if they are drugs related/rape etc then obv reasons you ain't getting in. However, take trip to your local careers office and see what they say.

Good luck!

Depends on the exact nature of your convictions as it goes. Anything very serious such as fraud, rape, drugs or the like and you are likely to be given the 'not suitable' vote.

If you want to join I would suggest that the first thing you do is a course to improve your use of the English language. A good grounding in English & mathematics will improve your chances of being offered a decent trade

....and stop typing in capitals! It implies that you're shouting.

Seriously though mate, and I'm not taking the p1ss, your spelling and grammar do need some attention. There are plenty of books you can buy to help, or if that's not your thing, visit your local adult education centre. A decent grasp of English along with maths will always help to create the right first impression.

When I suggested that Hoppy improved his standard of English it was meant to be taken seriously. Some of us are late developers and tend to enter further education later than others. I was fortunate enough to join the RN as a REM(A) in 1963. Those days it was mainly Tifffs who had GCE O levels (and of course most of the jennies) As a POAEM(A) I decided to take English & Maths O levels as thes were required for selection to Fleet Chief. I was 33 at the time and wished that I had done it earlier. I then attended Salisbury tech on day release and gained my ONC which basically gave me the same qualifications as a Tiff.
Anyone joining the RN without qualifications should be encouraged to improve their education, after all its free, pusser encourage it and it can only be a benefit to your promotion prospects.
Basically Faster Promotion = More Beer Tokens

Slim,
Sorry if you thought I was implying that you were taking the p1ss shipmate, I merely wanted to assure Hoppy that I wasn't.
