Rules when on leave?

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. Hi I was just wondering what are the rules when you are granted leave. Do you have to be available at short notice and do you have to stay in the country?
  2. You should be contactable, but you can go abroad provided that you let your ship/unit know, just in case


  3. I remember being recalled to the ship early, got to love Matelots dripping when they get back on board when that happens lol

    The unwritten rule, never answer the phone. :wink:
  5. Affirm, unknown number calling you during leave? Think I'll leave that. I also think I'll turn off my answer phone. Or put your "Special" phone number on your leave request form, you know, the one you have for those "freinds" you meet.

    Not that I, as a professional, hard working Senior Rate in Her Majesty's Royal Navy would condone such things, indeed if any of you cnuts do it I'll turn you in.
  6. Because a phone rings it does not have to be answered, and they all come with an off button. Her majestys fleet will sail on happily without you, enjoy your leave.
  7. There again we were recalled on the Dev in 72 and it was to go to Copenhagen, not much drippin then 8O :D :D :D :wink:
  8. Private telephones were unheard of in my day and mobiles and computers were in the realms of science fiction. Any body old enough to recall Dick Tracey and his wrist two way radio? My paren ts did not have a telephone until 1964. I untill 1976.
