Strange one for you... Currently an OC in the RNR and desperate to join full time! At 26, I am too old to join as a Warfare Officer (HM) which I originally pitched for but got too old in the middle of my AIB validity. After realising that I am currently living for Tuesday nights and occasional weekends I called the Careers Office to try and rectify my poor decision to join part time by beginning an application for full time entry to HMS Raleigh but was told it has to be an internal transfer-so far through communicating with my unit it seems my unusual request has left everyone in a muddle with no definite answers! I understand I will have to complete the full 10 weeks at HMS Raleigh but while I'm STILL waiting for a response...can I leave my OC days behind me and join Basic Training at HMS Raleigh?!
