A top[-heavy navy

Discussion in 'The Quarterdeck' started by epsom salt, Oct 7, 2015.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Today's RN is desperately short of sailors with skills.
    Admirals Commodores and Captains--Inundated.
    Technicians? Scraping the barrel
    Fewer and fewer skilled people making themselves available ,whilst the Admirals etc slope off to a splendid pension with further benefits ,one can only dream of
  2. Damn - I thought this was about female sailors with big boobs.

  3. This is not news or new. Its been like this since before I left the RN 2 years ago. Even then we had more Admirals than Ships/Submarines.

    How would you critics recruit, retain, organise, manage, employ and command the Service in order to make the Navy's lot a better one and improve value for money for the taxpayer?

    Would this be the same navy that this week announced it was scrapping 300 Officer and WO posts to recruit 600 new JR posts?

    Must admit, if I was an Admiral, I wouldn't vote for Christmas either.

    No, hang-on, if I was a turkey I wouldn't voluntarily make myself redundant.
  11. You can't get a proper bow wave in the new style caps either!!

  17. Sorry to piss on your parade / divisions chaps, but 'Talk Like a Pirate Day' was last week or the week before that as I recall!

    If an AB scored an Admiral's splendid pension and 'further benefits' he'd be an Admiral. What 'further benefits' do retired Admirals enjoy?
