Morning,
In the life after diesel-drinking, Hooley-Bar wrecking, Skimmer-Bashin'
negative-washing, one pair of socks and nicks wearing, sun-dodging,
swamp-donkey bonkin' , hot-bunking and self-abusing - how many
(ex) submariners became (or still are) fine upstanding pillars
of the community i.e. rozzers/scuffers/old bill etc ? . Did you
see the light?

Yup, Souf Lunnun's Finest Filth. I did not see any light, it was a well paid job for a L/S RP2 not qualified for much else except rigger. Fank Feck I got out a few years ago before PC seriously set in and my ex-DI the Head Wizard of PC became the Commisioner.

First post, and a timely thread for me.

I'm in the Police Service of Northern Ireland, and I have 12 years service. Was once a good career, now I'm not so sure :neutral:

I am considering (seriously) joining the Royal Navy, and I am interested in particular in the submarine service, as a rating.

My only slight problem being, I'm 34. The Royal Navy website tells me that they recruit up to 36. But in practice, would I be laughed out of the careers office ?

Could I carry over my pension ? What are opportunities like for chef's in the submarine service ?

Any assistance would be appreciated. Thank You.

Re: Joining up at 34 - It would probably be a good idea to check out
your nearest recruiting office about this - and as for being a cooky-boy
on boats - if you don't burn stuff.....and love working in a 6 foot
square metal box sweating yer bo**ocks off - watching every
pot/pan/dish/fanny/plate/knife/fork/spoon take on a life of its
own when the skipper decides to do "Angles & Dangles", then
go for it matey!

black - give 'em Jack!"

If you want to be a Submarine Chef, good luck to you. Is a Feckin hard job. People are always dripping at you, about 10%, if you are lucky, say thanks for the scran. The ingredients are shite most of the time, no fresh produce, crap meat.... etc. Ontop of this you could be turning out 160 meals 3 times a day, plus soup at 1AM watch change. The thing about angles and dangles is true, as is the fact that whenver the ventilation is stopped you die in the Galley.. The tempreature regularly went above 40C.. and the chefs were sweating. Reactor Scram 1 hour before SCRAN and then the MEO still drips when food isnt served on time!!

But. It is a great job. The Killlick runs the Galley, the POCA and Pusser just let him crack on if he is good... and kick his arse if he is shite! But you must be able to learn, and quickly, stick up for yourself, and tell the greedy pie eating Senior Rates to **** off!! Always a perk. Just dont piss off the CO/XO/LO. Keep them happy and life is easy!
