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. Hey everyone. I finally got my start date and i leave in 3 months. I just wanted to thank everyone that gave me great advice on the branch i wanted to join, and helped me with the joining process. I'm thankfull to you all and it really helped me along greatly. So thanks to everyone again!!!! :lol: :lol: :lol:
  2. Hi RNMA,

    Keep us posted about your progress and how you find life in a blue suit... and don't forget to add your duvet details to the relevant thread when you become a baby MA! :lol:


  3. Your more than welcome mate , ever get sent to Derriford Hospital give me a shout , I'm the one wearing a NUFC theatre hat , best of luck , enjoy , :D
  4. Lift a scab and strap a Solprin on it for me
  5. Congrats!!! just wondering how long it is since you first applied, as I have been waiting & waiting. Passed everything in august and it seems to be taking forever!
    Again congrats and good luck
  6. Wot ever the instructors tell yers remember the rank is "Scab Lifter" not MA.

    Have a great life, you may never be rich but few will have as much fun as you, we all did thats why we are still hanging about RR

  7. Well done mate,if you ever spot a "lonely" looking BR 888,give it a draft chit my way will you?
  8. Hey congrats, good luck and enjoy! Basic may seem like a bad time but looking back, you'll remember it as one of your best times!
  9. hi everyone im new to the whole rum ration thang' im jon anywayz. just passed my pjft wondering how long it usualy is before u get your start date?
  10. Hey thanks everyone for your comments. much appreciated. I really can't wait till i join. I know it will be hard at times, but i know i'll never give up. I think seeing my families faces on the passing out parade will keep me going through the worst times.

    Hey jonboy and haribo, well i passed my fitness test in July, and I only got my start date this week. it does seem like a long time, well it did for me too, until i ended up forgetting about checking the post everyday and next thing my CRB form arrived. so i just rang up, and they already had my main security clearance back at the careers office. so all they had to do was call me back after about an hour with a start date.
  11. Congratulations Mate! I passed my fitness test last day of June and am still waiting. Did they tell you what your waiting list time was when you applied? Unfotunatley I had to change AFCO as my local one closed down halfway thru the process - the first one told me the wait was 15months for a Seaman Specialist and the second one told me 8 months and then they said a few weeks later it was 15 months - so I don't really know where I stand!! The second AFCO also lost part of my application forms so I worry about the accuracy of their information. I know the wait will be worth it.
  12. Hey Polo, i never really had a waiting list. They said beside i'm going into the submarine branch that as soon as my clearance came through, i would get a date. Think its because its a specialist field and short of applicants. Good luck for yourself mate, and i hope you get a start date soon as well!
  13. It all depends on the trade, i did my fitness test on the 28th of sept and got my start date the tuesday after and i start on the 5th Nov! Its all a bit quick!!!
