start in june, air craft carrier?

Discussion in 'The Fleet' started by tractor lad, Feb 3, 2014.

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. how do you rate my chances of getting posted to 1 of the new air craft carriers if my Raleigh date is at the end of June?
     
  2. Lesson one....Pongos and crabs get posted.............jack gets drafted/shafted, same thing.
    Lesson two....Get through your training.
    Lesson three...Complete a Drafting Preference Form, stating that you'd like to serve on Minesweepers.
    ....mate of mine did that and he got Ark Royal......drafty has a wicked sense of humour.

  3. 30,670 serving members of the RN. Carrier complement 679.
    Assuming you make it through training I will therefore give you odds of around 45/1. Odds halving upon arrival of HMS Prince Charlie.

  4. What trade are you going in as? Is the tractor a reference to NA(AH) or are you just into tractors?

    No likely if you are going in as Mine Warfare.

  17. Sorry about that, Guns........been out of the loop a while !...........new jargon.....but no doubt you get my drift !
     
  18. Not withstanding the, getting out of training - becoming totally disillusioned and becoming one of the many that spend time actively avoiding any sea draft!!!! I assume they do still exist - disillusioned I mean not sea drafts!!!!!
     
  19. Doesn't make it right though :)

  20. I think so. I'm sure I heard someone talk in hushed tones about one the other week. It was an AB though.
