In random boredomness, I've just been checking the RN website careers section, looking at the benefits in various branches. In most, you get information on the basic salary schemes, free dentistry, heavily subsidised accomodation, job security etc. In the Warfare Specialist section it just states that "Warfare Specialist join the Royal Navy on a six-year Short Commission, which you may be able to extend to eight years. You will be able to apply for selection for a Medium Commission of 18 years or for a Full Commission up to the age of 55." That's it... Are Warfare Specialists not able to receive the same benefits as other branches, or is the Website spouting crap? Is it difficult to go in for the full career term as I fully intend on making a career out of the Navy and not just 6/8 years... Any information that can be given from personal experience would be really helpful..
