X(sm) r.o.s

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. Afternoon,
    Can anyone tell me the return of service for x(sm) please? I have searched on the site but most of the info is quite old. I am aware that it is in BR3 but I am currently using my phone so cant download it. Many thanks for anyone that helps.
  2. Does this help, NFF?

    5303. Officers

    a. RN and RM officers are required to give a ROS in recognition of the cost of their initial training which for all (except those promoted under the Senior Upper Yardman (SUY)/Senior Corps Commission (SCC) schemes) is defined as the training completed prior to joining the trained strength (e.g. Phase 1 training undertaken at BRNC Dartmouth and CTCRM Lympstone; Phase 2 professional training such as IWOC, ILOC(M) and SEMC). For officers promoted from the ranks via the SUY/SCC schemes, initial officer training is considered to be complete once individuals commence their first effective assignment.

  3. Thanks. I was looking for an ammount of years sort of thing although what I have noticed, if I am correct, that your r.o.s starts on completion of IWOC.
  4. Table 53B-2. Completion of Initial Training - All Officer Branches

    Officers (inc SUY)

    X(GS) IWOC On completion of Initial Warfare Officers Course (IWOC)

    X(SM) IWOC On completion of Initial Warfare Officers Course (IWOC)
  5. Ok. I have a start date of r.o.s. Just need an end date.

    I reckon the Return of Service, subject to confirmation by your UPO is 5 years commissioned service from completion of professional training for X(SM) but again, you'll need to confirm it yourself.
