Two silly questions...

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. Evening,

    So I have my AIB next Sunday. I know I my dress standards must be spotless at all times. So I was wondering, should I get rid of my beard? Silly question I know, but I'm not sure if I'd seem too keen or not... haha.

    Oh and I can't for the life of me remember the ships that are currently out on the Armilla patrol. :L

    Thanks in advance!

    Torch.

  2. As long as it's trimmed neatly there isn't a problem having a beard.

    Lots of people will probably reply disagreeing and saying beards are awful and that you're just lazy. They're wrong though.

  4. Armilla?!

    I presume you are a sock puppet of the ROMFT crowd.

  7. My Liaison officer told me to get rid of mine as they would want to be able to envision a finished product at the AIB.
     
  8. Be a bit of a bugger if you pitch up clean shaven and the board all sporting beards. But good luck. :)

    Facial hair is quite de rigueur at Raleigh these days.



    Yes Wrecks, that's fortunate for me...

    One of the funniest phone calls I received was from an irate PTI from Lympstone: "What the f*** were you thinking of sending a guy with an afro on PRMC?" He asked.

    "Did he pass?" I asked. "Yes" came the reply.

    "Well you can pick him up for it if he subsequently decides to join. Until then, not your call Lofty".
