Hi people Im a killick WAFU, been in just over 10 years and ive always fancied being a diver. I would request to go ships diver tomorrow if they brought it back but unfortunately that s not going to happen. Anyway my (few) question is: 1: Would i lose my rate if i branched changed to clearence diver? 2: Would i take the pay drop should i lose my rate? (im level 5 killick) 3: Would i start from the beginning with all the joe public fresh from Raleigh? 4: If i did lose my rate would i get it again sooner than the 78 years it took the first time? I wouldnt mind losing my rate if i kept my pay. As i have 2 kids and am married, i couldnt do it if i took the pay cut too. ANy other information would be great and also from existing divers, what is it like? Cheers shippers's MOD EDIT: BOTH TOPICS MERGED... Bloody wafu's!
