Go for it. When I was on RFAs (not in the RFA I hasten to add), the deckies seemed to have the best job in my opinion. It opens up a fair few options to do some cool stuff like RIB driving and upperdeck guns crews, plus you can get some decent civvy quals like crane licences etc.
If memory serves the comms guys were also ex deckies who had moved on, so there is some career progression if you want to move in that direction.
I know that you said on the Boxing thread that the enquiries people had said to call back in November, but I think that it would be in your interests to check with RFA Recruitment as to when the particular role you are interested in will be recruited for. I think that Ex Jenny suggested that this will most likely be next year and recommended ringing the RFA to check.
The number to call is 02392 725923 - I suggest ringing them on Monday.
This is just so that you can plan the next few months - I wouldn't want you to plan on the assumption that you will be able to apply and sit the RT in November.
I first contacted the RFA in feb and they said SG2 recruitment would open June - July. I sat RT July and had interview this month. Now it's a waiting game to see if I was successful but the first course out of the 2 they recruited for this time round starts in January! Pretty quick compared to the RN.
If you haven't got a book yet you can have mine. I don't need it. Can send via cheapest snail mail at no cost to you.
