Now Commander Maritime Reserves has stood up, does anyone else feel that nothing has happened. 2SL as was seems to have put it all aside now he's got Fleet.
PartTimer said:Much of it was driven by 2SL and his pushing for 'One Navy'. On several occasions I heard him get vocal about attitudes which highlighted the 'separateness' of the RN and RNR.
As the RNR will come under Fleet shortly as an operational capability I can only think that this porcess will continue. Its been indicated that we'll move to a full time/part time Navy, with a natural movement between the 2 as peoples circumstances change.
Losing the 'R's is all part of this. Someone told me recently issued ID cards for RNR only say 'Royal Navy' on them.
