Hi, I have been reading your site and find the information supplied very useful indeed, however I am giving serious thought to joining the RN and was wondering if I may ask some questions of my own. I was thinking of the Warfare Specialist or Seaman Specialist roles and wondered if anyone could expand on these jobs and pros/cons of each as from what I have read they most appeal to me. Part of the appeal of becoming a Warfare Specialist is that I do not wish to spend months training for a job I will only be doing for five years at best as I will be thirty five soon. What are the reality's of a thirty five year old doing Rating training? I did go to Canterbury Careers Office, who knew it would be shut on a Saturday! lol. Thanks.
