Any chance of getting to Afghan?

Wannabe_Officer

Midshipman
I'm a Naval Bursar coming up to BRNC entry. I know it's basically Army and Royals in combat roles out in Afghan, but is there any chance I could get out there as a warfare officer? It's several years since I decided to go for the RN and [blasphemy] if I were applying again now, I probably apply to the Army instead [/blasphemy], but I'm still kinda keen.

So you've taken a place that hundreds of people would kill to get, and you now want to run away and join the pongos? Good luck!

Yes there are opportunities there, but by the time you get out of training its (hopefully) likely to be over.
