Iam looking to join the navy as a submariner chef just going through the process of having a tattoo removed
when I sit the recruitment test do I need a high score? Does anyone know how long waiting lists are for this role?


War Hero
Chef Submariner is a very short wait to join - three months test to entry is not uncommon.

Hard work, long hours, cramped conditions and all the MasterChef food critics you could dream of every day & every meal.

The tattoo must be completely gone before you join if it's visible on the head, hands, neck, face.


yer iam mental lol,its just something I have always been interested in, the tattoo is my daughters name on my hand,i understand that it needs to be gone completely. That is a short waiting list im pleased as my son has just passed his fitness test this morning and has been advised a two year waiting list to be a airman.

Aslong as you can't cook and have no hope of being able to do so, you should be fine

Whilst it's appreciated you may mean that in good humour, I tend to think you are being unfair to one of the hardest working branches in the RN.

If I were a chef & knew your I'D, I'd make sure your statement became self-fulfilling.

Possibly it already has, granted.

Potentially a father and son passing out of Raleigh together at some point in the future? I reckon that's never happened before.

Good luck to you both.

Could be fun going down the Octagon on the pull with your Dad! Unless he copped off and you didn't!

What happens in Rayleigh, Raliegh, Raleigh, stay in Raleigh.

As long as it tastes good. But I'm sure the navy will beat that out of him.

All chefs on boats should be able to cook up good stuff - this I know....survived almost 22 years of underwater scran and I'm still here.

I heard food has a funny taste to it if you eat it under water?

All depends if the wrecker has managed to keep the diesel out of the fresh water tanks?
We had odd tasting fresh water at sea, milk would not mix with tea and coffee, on our return to UK some science bods in protection suits went into the tanks and cut some growths of the tank bulkheads and took them away for analysis, never did find out what they were.
So to make good food the chef needs good ingredients, so if your supplies and services to the galley are poor blame the wrecker but if you have good ingredients and supplies and services to the galley expect critics.
In submarines being the chef will only be one of your Jobs, first you have to pass your part 3 (or whatever it’s called now) and that is not that easy, you have to achieve the right standard to pass WreckerL like myself will have taken many a trainee regardless of rank for part 3 walk rounds, we had to make sure when shit hits the fan you will know how to shut a compartment or bulkhead down. As a senior rate you could be a planes man, attack BA and part of the damage control firefighting team, offer of the watch below on the surface. There is a saying in boats that we do not carry passengers when on opps, and every person has more than one job, except the skipper.
So if you choose to join, good luck, and have fun whilst your young.
