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. UNIVERSITY ROYAL NAVAL UNIT TRAINING OFFICER

    A vacancy exists at Cambridge University Royal Naval Unit (CURNU) for a Training Officer. If you are ex-RN, RNR, Merchant Navy, or have skills, experience and qualifications that would allow you to teach navigation, seamanship and leadership in a Naval context, you will enjoy this challenging and fun part-time training post. Former URNU members are also welcome to apply.

    Based in Cambridge, we train up to 51 undergraduate students in the need for and role of the Royal Navy. We train on Thursday evenings in Cambridge, and at weekends with our dedicated training ship HMS RAIDER, based in Ipswich.

    Successful application would require you to join the Royal Naval Reserves List 7 (NO call up eligibility for current operations). You would be expected to undertake a 2-week training package at Britannia Royal Naval College, Dartmouth, and participate in at least 16 training evenings, 3 weekends and one two-week period over either the Easter or Summer holidays in each academic year. The post attracts pay at a rate of £37.50 per day when on duty, a bonus if the above commitment is met, and travel expenses allowance. Uniform is provided, initially at the rank of Sub-Lieutenant RNR. Opportunities exist to gain RYA qualifications up to and including Yachtmaster (Power) depending on experience/ability. Opportunities also exist to conduct Adventurous Training, and you would have access to all Tri-Service Adventurous Training courses and expeditions.

    Interested applicants should expect to be able to commit to the Unit for at least 3 years.

    Contact the Commanding Officer, Cambridge URNU, at 2 Chaucer Road, Cambridge, CB2 7EB or email [email protected]. You should forward a CV detailing your experience and qualifications. Qualified individuals will then be called forward for interview.

  2. Interesting. I thought URNU training officers are all RN Lieutenants. Just out of interest, how are the training staff at the various URNU units composed then?
     
  3. URNU Units have an Officer in Charge who is a serving RN Lt (regular). The Unit IC is also the Commanding Officer of the unit's P2000 Archer Class patrol boat. Each unit also has an RN Chief Petty Officer (regular) who acts as the unit coxwain. Units also usually have secretaries who are civilian employees.

    In terms of training staff units have 3/4 Training Officers who are List 7 Reservists (not liable to call-up - wear the "R" in their curls to distinguish them from RNR officers on other lists) who start off as SLts (RNR) and progress after a time period and various different training courses to Lt (RNR).
     
  4. In terms of the P2000 ship's companies:

    CO - Lt RN
    XO - CPO
    MEO - CPO
    WEO - Killick
    Navs Yeo - AB

    What you want to do is apply for Oxford URNU. They have always been the best.........................................
