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. Well I had a very nice call from the AFCO before work this morning. Someone has dropped out which means there is a place for me. :whew:

    The magical date is the 21st September :w00t:

    I thought the day would never arrive that I could put this post up and I feel over the moon. A summer of fun the it's time to crack on with the hard work (yeah I know it's not like it used to be bla bla bla). Either way i'm happy and i'm gonna take all I can get!!!

    Anyone else got the same start date? Be cool to hear from anyone who does. :thumright:
     
  2. Well Done and good luck

    Excellent. Now get your arse down the pub to celebrate and get shitted. Then arrested, get a criminal record, then the Navy will turn you down... 8O

    Only joking - well done, mate! :thumright:
     
  4. Well the thought has crossed my mind but i dont think my careers advisor would be happy with that just because of the ammout of times i have phoned him in the last 18months asking if there is any news :thanks:

  7. I thought it was ANZAC day? :confused:

    Well done. Don't forget to get a number 0 body shave before you join or you wont be able to share and mess with the lasses!
     
  8. Well done mate. Remember; if it were that easy everyone would have joined...
     
  9. Re: The wait has been long but at last i have my date!!!! :-

    There has been a change and i am now joining up on the 14th September!!!! :w00t:

    Only 65 days to go. Is there anyone else on here joining the same day as me? PM me if you are.
     
  10. I wish. Good luck mate.

    Why has it took so long for your enlistment to come through? What trade you going for?

    I have my PJFT tomorrow at 10.30am, everything else is passed, medical took a bit of time with a history of asthma but done a peak flow test for a month and was cleared. Security clearence is sorted just the run now.

    After that the CPO can bid for a place in sept. I'd join tomorrow if there was a spot. Can't wait.

    It has been a long wait because of the branch i want to join. I knew it'd be long because i was told so when i applied. The MA's list is one of the longest i'm told. I dont mind because i know i'm going into a branch that i want to join and not one that has a short wait which would result in me not enjoying myself as much.
