1 Which offence have you committed which has led to your conviction?


2 The joke about there "perhaps not being a Navy in 5 years" relates to peoples' feelings about the cutbacks being imposed on the Senior Service and how this will impact on the number of vessels and personnel at the Navy's disposal.


3 It might be worthwhile signing up for something like the Times Online newsletter so that you can keep up with current affairs.

4 Re joining as an Officer, once you get past 26 the number of opportunities starts to reduce, but Logistics Officers may join up the age of 31.

There was a 32 year-old lad who joined up with my RM troop. Don't worry about your age, he was a cracking lad and got his lid. Best of luck

1. I have been convicted of a dishonesty offence. Theft by abuse of position.

2. Ok I had not heard about that.

3. Done.

4. Due to the offence involving dshonesty I am not able to join the logistics branch. I was refering to my ability to work my way up to officer from a rating.

And you say you want to "work your way up to officer", well with every rank comes an amount of power, with power comes responsibility, you it appears have a history of abusing these things to steal, I somehow don't think you are well suited.

It might sound harsh, but when the RN is overwhelmed with interested applicants who are of good character, why should they be the reform school for those members of society who are not so upstanding.

and you know everything about my convicton do you?

If you search for my old threads you will see I explained I did not take the money. I realise that trying to explain over the intenet is futile. I am merely seeking advice, not opinion or ripping. Considering that it is unlikely I would meet anyone from these forums (or that if I did I would know it was them an vice versa) What ue would lying be?

Just speak to the AFCO and see what they say....

I spoke honestly with my recruiter and it only helped, they'd know best whether your suited or not and whether it would matter or not...
