Here's one to ponder: URNU Mission Statement: "...to educate a wide spectrum of high calibre undergraduates who show potential as society's future leaders and opinion formers in the role and need for the Royal Navy" As most are aware URNU Students are classed as "List 7 RNR" with no war-time liability, nor obligation to join the service after they graduate. They do not take AIB, but do undertake an interview & a medical. Given that only a few URNU members actually join the service, and it's primary function is not to recruit: Should the same medical fitness standards apply as for regular service or should the standards be less stringent to allow an even broader spectrum of students access under the Mission Statement? There are few current politicians with former military experience - Maybe this would enlighten more future politicians. What do you think?
