POCY Course at HMS Mercury.....phil1972 said:I really enjoyed the 547 SPO team members course particularly the exercise on the Bristol.
What are other experiences of course you would say to other RNR they should put themselves down for if they get the chance?
Never took the course but was involved in its instruction - it was a battle to remain motivated enough to turn-to as an instructor, I hate to think what it was like for the lads/lasses taking this course!trehorn said:Most boring was the Comms accelerator. The people on the course were great but the course was the equivilant of taking sleeping pills!
Fleetwork Merwex was the only subject I really enjoyed, V/S (when we were allowed to teach it) could be interesting, but any Merwex involving Sparker-shit was a real downer.WarMonger said:Merwex's for me were really good, it helped me to reaffirm why I wasnt a communicator....Yawn!!!!... :wink:
Remember the black fearnaughts and BASCA's...Sighh...and how important it was to keep your tits in!!!..(those who remember BASCA's will know)...Shakey said:Enjoyed BSSC, but it was old school BSSC with diesel fires not the gas fire rubbish.
Interestingly on my BSSC a different woman cried on every day.
One was scared of fire, one was scared of water, one was scared of flooding etc etc etc. :roll:
