Wearing of dolphins and being PMU submarines

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. sorry if this is in the wrong place Ladies and Gents?!

    I've got my medical board next Tuesday and I've just been made PMU submarines

    As my heads up my arse at the minute, I'm not sure if I can still wear my dolphins or not?
    I don't want to make myself look like a twat in front of the board by wearing them if I've been
    Made medically unfit but on the same note, having served on boats for nearly 8 years, I think if more than earned the right to continue wearing them.

    If anyone knows where I stand I'd be really grateful for their input.

    Many thanks

    You have qualified and are therefore entitled to wear them.

  3. You passed your Pt3 Gerry, you are as entitled to wear them as anybody else. You wear them on your chest not your sleeve, once awarded they're yours.
