Hello to all reading this post and please let me just say that this is my first. At the moment Iâ€™m a civi, I've been thinking of joining the navy for a long while now. I'm 26, Iâ€™m an electrician and earning well. Yet I feel that joining the navy would be good for me and take my life in a new direction. I've always been interested in submarines and the role they play. Can anyone give me their thoughts on... a) Joining the Navy? b) Joining as a Submariner? From what Iâ€™ve read about and the general layout of the RN website it does seem like the submariners are treated quite a bit differently to other navy personnel.
