Rum Ration staying afloat

That's partly due to the fact that there are 100s of thousands of never served gobshites ex-soldiers on ARRSE, compared to the numbers of ex-RN.

And, I suppose, you jolly Jack Tars might actually socialise more in the real world...

It's a shame, 'cos some of the funniest dits on ARRSE are RN ones. The tale of the escalation of the "longest time between course corrections" was awesome. :D

There will be a few of us socialising on the 7th of March at the SM2 piss up reunion, there was over 200 of us last year :cool:

The forum functions in a variety of ways; sometimes these aren't visible to the casual observer.

Although there seems to be fewer posts from potential applicants nowadays, when they do appear, the posters do often get more help that you can see on the forum itself.

When Ninja was in his post as a Careers Advisor, he responded via the messaging system to many posters and this was really appreciated by them, especially if they were the parents of an applicant.

There are other posters on here who help with information via the messaging system and I know that they go out of their way to find out what is required.

The RN Recruitment page on Facebook is, for want of a better expression, somewhat insipid, as the replies to posters are just copied and pasted and don't actually answer the question.

I know of several people who are now serving who posted about their worries about their applications on Navy Net/Rum Ration. For some of them, the fact that they posted about a worry or just about an enquiry and then saw someone responding to them meant a lot, especially if they were very young at the time.

Wot's Jackspeak for "brown-noser"? :D
Evd.......
Jackspeak gives a definition of 'brown noser':
"Someone who spends a lot of time snivelling around his superiors may be described as a b. n."
(Point 3, Pg B42. First Edition 1989)
Although it features in Jackspeak, I think that the term is in common usage across the UK. However, I prefer my old man's terminology (ex-WW2 pongo), who referred to such persons as 'arsehole creepers'.

As is the modern way I've heard it shortened to Creep-arse. Seems to do the same job.

I wondered if there was a more nautical apell... appli... appal... term!
