Still mulling over what to do afterwards, economy's not doing so good so I'm mulling over the Royal Navy for a few years to get some money and experience. Don't suppose anyone else has done this at all?... Pirate



I did similar many, many years ago but went down the army path. Just make sure that you get a clear accelerated promotion path to reward you for the time that you have invested in getting the qualifications that they are going to benefit from

The one that the chaps at the recruitment office pointed to me towards was Marine Engineering Officer, seemed interested in getting me to go for the Submarine fleet though. Mention of postgrad diplomas too, still researching it but it looks appealing to do for a few years and look at BAE or do an EngD and see how it ends up What?

Did this, though I went enlisted.
Cool

As I understand things, the RN submarine fleet does this a bit different - All USN submarine officers are fully-qualified engineering officers, too. I understand that the RN uses what we in the USN wouldd refer to as 'Limited Duty Officer - Engineering' for their Reactor sections. Quite possibly the RN practice is a superior method - Not sure. Certainly, though, you'll get a LOT of very specialized and practical information shoved into your head. Which is both fun, and useful. Twisted

Never regretted going 'Nuc.' It's hard, the hours are insane, the working conditions are abominable, and you'll absolutely love it. Or crater in very short order, in a manner most spectacular. Lol

Nah, more like

Stupidly rich guy / large company goes into an investment bank
"Hey I have too much money and want to open a bacon factory in Saudi Arabia. Is this a good idea?"
Then after the bankers have looked at them for being total idiots they might say yes then they come to us and ask.
"This stupidly rich idiot has too much money, we want some of their money, is their idea good?"

Then we come back and tell them no and why. We dont offer investment advice, but warn about the risks involved due to war / religion / politics / future potential disasters.

We're not accountants, we sign off / warn against large investments for the insurers and underwriters so if it all goes pear shaped they know who to blame. (not us, but the idiots who advised them to do this)

In the financial world we're paid to be honest and this is a bloody rare thing.


i am the banker in this example.

I know a friend who made it as a Nuke for submarines. He is happy with it. Though I would never go nuke... I hate heavy math or the idea or submarine life. Frigates and cruisers are where it's at :p

Lotta people say that. It's a better life than you'd expect. Sure, 'SSN' really means "Saturdays, Sundays, and Nights" but it's a heady thing, belonging to a no-BS real-life elite group - men (and now a few women too) who not only will move the earth to save your worthless hide, but actually know HOW to do it - And you reciprocate. Working with people who CARE about their job, and have a passion for doing it right - people you trust on an instinctual level... Well, that's better than stealing fire from the gods.

Reminds me of the time when the Royal Navy were hauling a target around for the gin-soaked waxy-moustachiod ones in the RAF for target shooting one day.

After a few runs from the RAF the captain of the RN vessel opened up a channel and spoke to the firing controller, "For your information we're towing the target, not pushing it"

Lol! Yea, I remember one cruise we pulled into port and the whole side of our ship was tan from all the sand flying around. The funniest targets are the big floating tomatoes we like to decorate and toss in the water for the ship to try to shoot at.

Granted about the carriers. ;)

Once watched a fellow boat-driver put a 'red combo' right on the deck of a birdfarm. Lol

The only airborne ASW platform that ever worried me was the P-3. No other airborne platform had the endurance and processing capacity to do anything serious to us without they had immediate hull-born support available. And what is hull-born support, you may ask? A Target!Cool
