I mean, on entry when your on your way to the location via train. It says something about shirt with collar attached but it is not very clear on it. Do you have to wear shirt and tie and suit jacket as well? What did you wear?

Thanks.

Wear what it says. I am sure there will be no hidden meaning to catch you out.

Did you get the notification delivered in the correct language? If not contact your AFCO and I'm sure they will send it in braille or text speak, whichever is your preferred medium!!!

The two replies thus far whilst bieng comical are of course flippant.
What you should strive to portray is smart but practical.
I always found A loose fitting dress with a decent pair of thigh length boots to be fetching.
And a sword. Always carry a sword. Mine is Pork but very practical.

Copy of the letter below:

PRNC Letter said:
ENCLOSURE 1TO RN ACQUAINT LETTER

CODE OF CONDUCT FOR THOSE ATTENDING PRE-ROYAL NAVY COURSE (RATINGS) AT THE ROYAL NAVAL ACQUAINT CENTRE

INTRODUCTION

The Royal Navy designed the PRNC to be enjoyable as well as informative for all. To ensure this goal is met the RN requires that all PRNC candidates, and in cases where the candidates are under the age of 18, their parents or guardians, read and agree to a code of conduct.

Non-military trainees who come to train in RN establishments are encouraged to respect and maintain an ethos similar to that of the RN itself. This Code of Conduct’s purpose is to ensure that candidates know the standards of behaviour expected of them, so that the course can be safe and enjoyable for all, and the RN can discharge its legal duty of care.

All candidates are required to read this code and declare that they are willing to be bound by it, by signing a copy before starting their PRNC(R). A full version of the code of conduct is available on request from RN Acquaint Centre (North) (RNAC(N)).

Authority of Uniformed and Duty Personnel

RNAC staff and duty personnel are authorised to maintain discipline, good order, security and safety in the establishment. Candidates at the RNAC(N) should respond positively to a request made of them and obey all legal orders. In an emergency, instruction from duty personnel must be followed promptly and without question.

Security and Safety

Strict security measures are necessary in military establishments because of the threat from terrorist organisations. All personnel are required to comply with any standing or local instruction. Candidates will be issued with a weekly visitor pass on arrival at the main gate which they must keep on their person at all times. All such passes are to be returned to RNAC staff on completion of the course.

Those attending RNAC(N) will be given appropriate instruction in Safety, Health, Environment and Fire (SHEF) issues. Candidates are required to comply with our legal SHEF obligations by adhering to the guidance and instruction given.

Attendance

All periods of programmed RNAC(N) instruction are considered compulsory, therefore it is expected that candidates take full part in the RNAC course programme at all times, as directed by the RNAC(N) staff. Punctuality is a vital aspect of military life and candidates are to be at their place of instruction prior to the designated start time to allow instruction to start promptly. Candidates will be expected to participate in a significant amount of physical exercise.

Dress

Candidates should arrive and leave MOD Caledonia dressed according to the following criteria:

Males - Shirt with collar attached, tie, trousers (not jeans) and shoes.

Females - Blouse, trousers or skirt (minimum knee length) and shoes.

For the duration of the PRNC(R) loan clothing will be issued and worn throughout - there will be no opportunity to wear civilian clothing during the course. Any damage to issued clothing is to be reported promptly to RNAC(N) staff. For safety reasons candidates will be required to remove jewellery when requested to do so.

- it doesn't mention coat, vest, nicks or socks either, nor the fact that jacket, bowler, top hat or tails are optional.

What a gash reply, you never came near mentioning the sword.
No wonder there's a whole generation growing up damaged.

Haha thanks for replies, you know after reading it over again, it does make sense and is acutely quite clear. Maybe a little pitcture on the side of future letters, just a suggestion.

Sit down oppo and have a cup of tea.
Now look at the bigger picture ( see what I did there?).
All early learning books have picture, and not everyone develops at the same rate.
This lad may be a bit of a late runner but given enough pink fluffiness in his life may well obtain his goals.
Now its obvious he will not get any special love from you but if he's skin I'm sure we can find him a mentor on this forum somewhere....
Type 42, where are you, Thingy you're needed,.......
 
Dear oh dear.. if you can't follow simple instructions then you aint gonna last long in Her Majesty's Navy. Did it SAY jacket? NO! so there's no requirement to.. but if you want to wear a jacket, then I doubt there will be an issue with that. When all else fails,
RTFD READ THE F*****G DOC.

Ah, happy (pink) days. I actually thought that dear old Thingy brought a certain 'something' to the posts wth his carefully worded grooming statements!!

It's always been a source of amusement to me that we are always told the old ******* are intolerant and homophobic and that the worlds moved on.
In the day we never give a **** (well I didn't) if a bloke was as gay as a cuckoo as long as he never tried to pork us, and as you say Thingy was a funny ******.
It was if I recall the younger members who drove the outrage bus as it "drove" him off the site.
Should we start a "Bring back the Thing" thread? He certainly brightened things up.
