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. Something I totally forgot to ask the recruiter.

    I was going to go into the army as a lCpl. Same apply?
  2. oh dear.
  3. Ermmm ever heard the term "recruit"??????

    Anyway what makes you so special as to miss out the rank of Private if you were to Join the Army?Are you a Royal Personage,or just a numpty?
  4. Okay.

    Assuming I pass

    my fitness test


    32 weeks of Commando training

    And get that covetated green beret

    I'm then a Commando, aye?

    So what're you? Commando? Marine?
  5. You will be Marine Bloggs.
  6. Excellent news, young man.

    Also, I've heard people moot the idea of getting 'commission' to be an officer. I have enough UCAS points to be one, but not enough GCSEs. What does the commission involve?
  7. kinell! after you earn the covetatatatated grean beret and you go on to serve in a unit you will be a Marine, then after specialising in something or doing the JNCO Cadre and being successful you may be promoted to LCpl, then come Cpl, the Sgt, the CSgt, then WO2 then WO1.

  8. Actually you are a rifleman in a rifle company
  9. You have to collect 150 Taleban headdresses and left ears to be put forward for Officer Selection.
  10. Has anyone got away with knocking in a few tea towels from their mam's cupboard just to make up the numbers?
  11. Nope, you need them to be bloodsoaked so the MA can test them for voracity,if you are found cheating you get an immediate draft to the Army Catering Corps as the new Recruits Food Taster.
  12. As a Sgt!
  13. Or a quicker way is to go an catch Osama bin laden :brave:

    I managed to join as a general, unfortunatley the corps was slightly top heavy officer wise when I passed out so I was busted down to Jne/mne.....not a rank you see nowerdays...special me.....so I joined 40 cdo as MNE 2nd class, nearly as good as a general I was informed.

    We had our own drivers to take us to the dose clinic, our own RSM to take us to the C.O when we fcuked up and even our own company to take the p1ss out of us.

    Dig out mate...you never know what you might achieve.
