Steely eyed glint thereLife is what you make it. Have a few mates who changed from Wafu to S/M's. Loved it, best decision they made talking to them. I reckon what I did was pretty ok too!!! So - you takes your chances whatever is thrown at you!!
TBH, I would have been an aircrewman without flying pay - however!!! Todays crewman is a different animal. Merlin is way more technical and the systems much more elaborate than in my day. Life was simple with only an on - off switch!!!! lol
Must add. (Edited Bit)
On off switch not with standing. ~Todays crewman doesn't have to do DR Navigation!! Now that was something. No computers, just a Dalton whizz wheel to do your sums for you!!!
Me in the office doing a bit of navigational magic!!!View attachment 55958
