hi there. im just finishing my a level in pe, math and physics. failed physic most likely.

im gona join the navy over the summer hopfully after re applying soon for rating entry as opposed to officer sponsership.

just wondering on all the pros and cons of aet and met. i.e. travel time for each? worktime and leave? how often your at sea and how often ashore? why every1 hates wafus lol according to other posts. how much sunlight met's see? and generally which one is better.
also whats navy rugby standard like?

cheers for any help. besty

No contest. AET wins every time. Don't know what Met does these days, in my day it was mainly wrens who did it and they were based at air stations in the main.
AET use it right, take all the breaks and you come out after your nine years with skills recognised in civilian engineering
MET practise your English so that you talk with a lisp and don't pronounce your Rs so call Rain, Wain and you could if you're lucky become a television weather girl.

I may be wrong, but I think MET is Marine Engineering Technician.

Everyone hates WAFUs cos they're jealous of us.....

Two types of people in the Navy - those that are WAFUs and those that want to be.......

OOPs :oops: showing my age. MET was always meteorology in my time.
in that case I am not qualified to advise as either will give good training and prospects.

you get good qualifictions and naval training in all three ET branches you just need to choice if you want to play on weapons, radar, sonar and comms(ETWE) or in the engin room(ETME) or on aircraft(AET).
 
if you like loads of shore time and sports go wafu and get yourself down to Culdrose which is prob only a few miles away from where you are now...and all this coming from an MESM :lol:

so if a stoker is now a MET what is a MET who does the weather????
A failed chockhead.
WS(HM)- stands for: Warfare Specialist (Oceanographic, Hydrographic & Meteorological). Sounds like the beginning of Grease Lightning, but there you go- they do weather forecasts. By the way, stokers are called ET(ME) not METs.
