    Can you apply to be an officer in the Army and the RN? If you don't get into one you've always got the other?

    Why do you assume you'll automatically get one if you don't get the other?

    (Yes, you can apply to as many as you'd like, but you'd need to have a good answer when they ask you why - and you'd need to think about why you're going for two quite different careers and if you'd be happy 'stuck' in the one you liked least.)
