The mighty RNAC

I Presume when all these newbies go on about the RNAC what they are talking about is a " Royal Navy aquaint Course" is this true?

If so what the fcuk is going on with the young thrusters of today? Do they need to be shown how to badly iron clothes and look a bag of shite? do they need to be shown how to shamble around in a loose gaggle of people? Jeez, are the standards of the prospective candidates so high now people have to be introduced and trained to keep depressingly low standards ? :twisted:

From what I'm led to believe, the biggest issue is that some of the 17/18 year olds can't run 2.4km in less than 11 mins. The RNAC allows the RN and the candidate to get a heads up on this issue before they turn up to RALEIGH and waste everyone's time when they get sent straight back home again.

I suppose it also keeps them interested during their 24 month wait to join!

well that didnt stop a 20 stone chick from getting to raleigh doing her first 2.4km and failing it multiple times, now if thats not wasting everyones time then i dont know what, as soon as she turned up everyone knew what was going to happen, my point is that with the pre fitness test how the hell can people like that get through the selection process.

i think the RN should make the RNAC like the PRMC so we can weed out the wasters first and to stop taking valuable places for other people that are up to the requirements.
