Both the above are public domain.

But don't be expecting particularly expansive answers beyond that.

<tongue in cheek> Allow me to assist: Even with just some punctuation it reads a lot better.

I'm working on my English at the moment. I have failed that subject three times so far but it is just English; Maths passed, Science passed.
</tongue in cheek>

I had remedial English at school and it really helped.
 
Not a dig, Dantae, but all the 148 Bty guys I have met have pretty impeccable English and Maths because of the nature of the NGS role (communicating absolutely unambiguously and calculating fireplans on a 27 rpm cycle, with times of flight, fusing and UTM grid references all mentally worked out).

And the 2 SCs I know are easily some of the best-edumacated non-officers I know (both degree-holders).

I'd REALLY work on my English if I were you - otherwise your RT score will come up with "Steward" or "Lt Cdr Engineer".

The Seamen chip and paint in the forenoon, then in the afternoon they paint and chip.

Sometimes they do a sort of pounding on the bulkheads too, normally while I am trying to get my head down. They do seem very good at it though, very regular and rhythmic, never really heard their painting though! :lol:
