Today I made the decision to leave the Fleet Air Arm after 20 years and join the Submarine Service as a MESM Officer. I never, ever thought I'd be saying those words but hey, it's a crazy life and you've just got to roll with the punches. So goodbye everybody :cry: I've loved every friggin' minute of it, and will look back on my time as a WAFU with fond memories of great times, great people and great detachments from California to Perth and everywhere in between. I look forward to meeting a whole new bunch of people and beginning a second life as a Submariner, and I hope that a WAFU can be accepted into the "brotherhood" with the minimum of nause. Reckon I'll be the only Nuclear Watchkeeper with 16 years on Harrier, 4 years on Merlin and full Fleet Air Arm Association membership! Says something when you'd rather be a Bubblehead than a Crab, eh?
