Hi, I've been thinking of joining the Royal Navy for a while now but would like to find a little more information before I go any further, I know I can go to a careers office and find all the info out but would like to go there a bit more wise than I currently am if you like. I've looked on the Royal Navy website numerous times. Will be very grateful for any genuine help to the following questions and if you have any more info please let me know. Thank you in advance. * If I was to join the navy as a warfare specialist what sort of career could I go into when I was to leave the navy? * Is there a current waiting list, if so how long is it? * I read on the navy website that you may be posted on land rather than sea sometimes, what would I be doing if I was posted on land? * What career would you recommend going for? * How do you find being away from family/mates? * When posted on board a ship, what is the main objective for the ship usually? * How long is a typical tour? * When on board what do personnel usually do in their spare time? * How likely is it that I'll be based onboard for most of my career in the navy? (I'd like to be onboard a ship rather than land) * Are you paid for your time off between tours? Again thank you for any advice you can give, sorry it's a bit of an essay.
