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. For the swimming test at the PRNC, it says you have to tread water for 2 minutes. Looking through old threads, I see some have said that you can just lie back and float for 2 minutes. Is this still the case, or do you have to actually tread water?
    Thanks.
     
  2. Just go swimming you massive, spluttering retard. Try swimming, try treading water, you spastic.

    I literally want to punch you in the face you irrelevant cock sucker.

    So that is not an option.

  14. I think a lot of the bone question threads are a result of "find out as much as possible about something before you do it, it will make you less nervous/ better prepared". People start asking questions just to know more and allay their anxieties. That is why people ask about the medical tests so much, even though you can't prepare for it in any meaningful way, if you know what is going to happen it gets rid of the great fear of the unknown. I doubt the OP wanted to float about in soggy overalls instead of treading water really...right?
     
  15. or the fact that the questions get asked 1000 times and noone bothers to put a little effort into search for the information that is very readily available.... like a phone call to your AFCO. It's simple Independence and shows you have the aptitude to go look for the information and not just have it spoon fed to you.
