Antartic patrol

#1
Hi, is there much chance of being able to serve on the Antartic patrol, if one joined the navy as say a marine engineering technician?

OK you volunteer for the Arctic patrols, this will give your oppos the chance to go to the Fez the Windies and the Americas.

See Topstops post, you'll only go into the Arctic (and the North Pole if you're lucky) if you're a submariner.
Mmmmmmmm seem to remember quite a few blue nose certificates on my skimmer during the "cold war". There were only 2 types of target, Nuclear and Conventional......;) (to show all in fun)

I've got a few of those as well, poodling around the Barents doesn't blackcat under ice ops though ;)

Followed a few of you around up there when we were bored though, even got some nice periphots, maybe you were in them :cool:

Your CO, if he was any good was probably my CO several years previously, when we did the job quietly and properly with no bastard knowing we were there.

Fife spent 3 days zigzaging in one of the Norwegian fjords looking for one of our A boats , she had nipped in the first day and took a periphot then pissed off back to Dolphin. Skipper was not amused.

Matty, IF nice Mr Putin keeps on dicking around the way he is and IF you ever get to join the RN, you may rue the day you wanted to do an Arctic patrol......

Just saying like.........
