Thanks for the website link.

It was the crossed rifles on the 1984 Army Recruiting Poster that I seemed to remember seeing.

Incidently, are the other 'trade and proficiency badges' still in use?

Hi,

Can anyone tell me if the RNR Medical Support Assistant (MSA) is the same job and description as the regular RN Medical Assistant (MA)?

HMS Itchen

Hi

Is there anyone here that has served on HMS Itchen - River Class Minesweeper? She was based at HMS Wessex (RNRTC) at Southampton.

What about Transexuals?

Are they allowed in and if they are, are they female or male, frontline or rear?

You could have a situation whereby a transexual completes the AACC or P-Coy. :o


PS: I am NOT a transexual, before anyone asks. :wink:

As you know the 'Skipper' whilst at sea has a lot of power, ie: Judge, Jury, Executioner and on small boats/ships is also the 'Doctor'. Remember, the Captain upholds 'The Articles of War' and has a lot more power than their counterparts in the Army and RAF. 'Requestmen and Defaulters' was a formal p...

What do you mean 'can't punish the men anymore'.

No 'Defaulters', No RNDQ's.

PS: Do they still call them WRENS? I suppose that's changed as well!

Don't F*** about, you'll get noticed.
Learn Jackspeak, it saves a lot of grief.
Have a good time, it really is fun!
Its only 8 weeks. 1 week admin, etc, 1 week at the end preparing for passing out parade, so its only 6 weeks bullshit.
