BRANCH BADGES...Mmmmmmmmm

CAN ANYONE ENLIGHTEN ME AS TO THE REASON WHY THE NAVY YET AGAIN HAS SPENT X AMOUNT OF £'S ON THE REVAMPING OF THE ACROSS THE BOARD BRANCH BADGES...
IN MY MIND A TOTAL WASTE OF MONEY.. WHEN OUR OTHER FORCES IN WAR ZONES DONT HAVE ENOUGH PROTECTIVE CLOTHING... AND ARE STILL DYING...
I'M SORRY BUT THAT JUST DOESN'T MAKE ANY SENSE TO ME....... :twisted:

Because "rebranding" is seen as an essential method of "moving " things "forward" and allowing overpaid twats to "think out of the Envelope",thus "reappraising the Population" to the "Modern Royal Navy".

Or as you say its just a waste of time, money and is a load of bollocks,just like Leicester Council did.They paid a PR company £75,000 to think up a slogan for Leicester.And the gem?

"Come to Leicester,its Interesting!"

The modern culture of spin and of believing in the omnipotence of private sector consultants is what is at fault. It is based upon the concept that by repackaging the same thing and re-marketing it as something new, the public will believe change has arisen, whereas it is simply a charade. Well that's my cynical view, anyway!

It would be nice to go back to the old days and you could tell at a glance who was in what branch. now I have just given up. No doubt the powers that be will change it all again soon.

Engineering Technician. Split WE and ME with WESM and MESM for submarines. By the time you reach CPOET you will have the same qualification (foundation degree) as an LWEA. OMs and WEAs are being replaced by ETs. OM = ET, CPOWEA = CPOET with a sliding scale of technical knowledge as you get your rate. Hope this isn’t too confusing.
 
Because my fiance came home for birth of our baby he missed his SA course start date and was in hold over for 8 weeks so now instead of being a SA (stores accountant) he is SC which sounds naft supply chain or something!

Oh well not as bad as the stewards and chefs......

Supply Chain is his subspecialisation. He will be reffered to as Logistician Supply Chain Smith and if being addressed over the main broadcast, this will be shortened to Logistician Smith.

How will the new writers ("Personnel" ?) be reffered to?
