Warning Positive Tread

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. I recently joined up full time (I had done 3 and a half years as RNR first) at an older (and hopefully wiser age of 35) breezed through Raleigh (it was easier than when I did it with the RNR.

    Trade training was good but I was glad to get out of Macenzie when I did. I got on board and two month at sea got my Dolphins. Hugely proud and yes still enjoying myself.

    Just thought I would give you a positive spin on the current RN and time on boats. So to the new recruits good decision, crack on!

    Where is Macenzie?
  9. Well done Phil. :)

  10. He could tell you but then he'd have to kill you :thumright:
  11. All received.
    Report back in ten years time lets see if the glitter ain't worn off then.
    Moi cynical never!!
  12. It's nice to see that someone who has recently joined the navy, after having had some life experiences prior to joining is actually enjoying himself. It's encouraging for others who are considering joining the navy and hopefully will use Phils post as a reason to look at CIS and SM if needs be. Keep up the good work Phil.

    Whilst the "glitter" may indeed wear off a little over time, lets not knock his entusiasm for his current career. Most of us were there at some time or other. Phil is embaking on what he considers to be an exciting and rewarding career, so let him get on it.

  13. Exactly, let him get on with it!
    What is 'CIS?
  14. Slip of the fingers then.

    Communications and Information Specialist
