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. what branch and job do u have to apply for , for an elecatrican and a mechanic. is there anything for a joiner
     

  2. electrician's and mechanic's are in various trades, ME, WE and AE. I'm sure an AFCO type can point you in the right direction or visit the RN website.

    I don't know what a "elecatrican" is?
     
  3. Missed your time. A couple of hundred years ago you could have reached the top!!!!

    All that nice oak. Nasty Spanish and French sailors blowing holes in Admiral Nelsons nice wooden ships.

    You could have a captain carpenter!!!!! :lol:
     
  4. Well JFH, if we're being picky, what is it you are referring to that belongs to the aforementioned electrician and mechanic?

    To pursue any form of joinery as a trade you would have to join as an ETME then specialise in the hull discipline at senior rate stage. Opportunities to work with wood are still limited though (especially at sea), but there are pure chippy jobs available ashore.
     
  6. The chops M was used to working with plenty of wood, as most dabbers were as thick as two short planks, :lol:
