  • What personal possessions am I allowed
    by (DracoKrys) on January 19, 2018 at 1:22 am

    I am interested in joining the Submarine Service and I was interested in what I can/cannot/should take with me. I want to know so I know what to buy/not buy or leave home. I hear that personal electronics are generally not allowed, but if I'm a chef, could I bring my own knives for example? What's illegal apart from the obvious such as drugs. What will I be given as part of my kit and is there anything I have to buy? […]

  • Preparing to join
    by (DracoKrys) on January 19, 2018 at 1:04 am

    I have not yet applied but I have tried to train myself to be slightly ready. I have done pushups and sit-ups and I know how to swim. But I am concerned that I am not using the right technique. I cannot bring my chest too close to the floor without touching it or it is physically impossible for me to push back up, I have to lower my chest all the way. And it is much easier for me and less painful for my back to have my hands behind my neck when I situp. Do I have to adhere to a certain...Preparing to join […]

    by (Ninja_Stoker) on January 19, 2018 at 12:52 am

    We'd very much appreciate tri-service feedback to highlight the issues people are having with the new Defence Recruiting System (DRS) since it launched on Monday 13th November. So far, most of the problems highlighted to the contracted company are from an AFCO angle, but it is appreciated it maybe equally as frustrating from an applicant's perspective and are also pretty certain we are potentially losing dozens, if not hundreds of applicants on a tri-service basis due to the software...Defence Recruiting System (DRS) Feedback request […]

  • Passed AIB with a near Perfect Score, what can I do while I wait?
    by (JustPointless) on January 19, 2018 at 12:01 am

    So this week I passed my AIB with a near perfect score, the Board President said it was the best score he had seen from a potential Warfare candidate in a fair few years. He is also more than confident that I will be selected for the May intake. I was just wondering what happens now while I wait to be selected? And also how other people have gotten on? […]

  • Packages in Basic-yay or nay?
    by (WasherWoman) on January 18, 2018 at 10:33 pm

    OH has gone to Raleigh and will be there on Val's Day. I fully understand drawing attention to guys down there isn't the best idea for them! I would hate to be the bringer of any teasing etc, even if in good humour. But a small package on Valentines? (Obviously no kinky, embarrassing or inappropriate things...just like....a card, sweets, I don't know, the usual stuff ) Would that be acceptable? Or am I best off just spending that money on a bottle of red for myself to forget it's...Packages in Basic-yay or nay? […]
