Saying hello...

As the title says, just a polite hello to you all so as to introduce myself.

I'm 34.......errr I mean 43! With a brain that thinks it's still 20. I've just (on Monday) filled out my online app for SG2 and am waiting for a reply from them. I hate waiting for this sort of thing and it's driving me mad lol. Like a cat on a hot tin roof at the mo!

Im ex RN..... Toooo many years ago, but hoping it will stand me in good for the SG2 applied for.

Im located just outside Cambridge.

Here's keeping my fingers crossed.

Cheers guys n gals.

Hi Njs71 Neil ! I'm 58 and am ex RNR RO1(T) It's my third attempt matey,just keep with it ! I aint ever giving up till they actually tell me to stop applying !!!!! Just returned from WMA and there were chaps 30 years younger than me in the fire cell who struggling inside with the big fires and got a few words of guidance from the resident fire officer's (who were all ex RN) like yourself,and If I remember well, Phoenix was a lot more severe !!!

Hello Neil. Good luck with your application!


Just the thoughts of a blonde ex-wren. Don't blame me if it all goes tits up.

Thanks for the welcome =)

I was AB(M) for 5 years so i'm hoping that that will stand me in good for the SG2 application. Biggest mistake i ever made thinking civvy street was better! I joined straight from school so i new no better at the time.

Reading this forum brings back so many memories for me with all the terminology used.... makes me chuckle to myself.

I rang the recruitment shortly after i posted here earlier and was told "Whoops i should have had an email" 20 seconds later i was informed that my app had been forwarded to the Portsmouth recruitment cell. So fingers crossed I'll hear from them soon regarding doing the RT. I assume that's how it goes. Any xtra info would be great from anyone.

@ Stobart driver. That's the way..... Never give up if you want something bad enough.

@ Joint Forces Harrier. Huntingdon is a bit far for me on a reg basis.... work takes most of my time at the moment. (run my own business) Whats going on over there for armed forces day?

@ Exjenny. Here's keeping fingers n toes crossed.

Cheers for that info joint force. I might have a drive down if I'm finished in time. The BOB flight sounds good. I love the sound of those things. Always over my house as I'm close to Duxford.
