E/Standard: Navy’s New Carrier So Large The Crew Need An App To Find Their Way About

I guess for Monty and me it was always this way, 'kin sprogs that we are. Even the SMR, Chippy, CPOSA and MAA would be seen with windy hammer and gogs, but I do think that was more a case of making a statement to the JRs of their depts.

The only time anyone other than the sailors got involved in the outside bit was when we went into dry dock and it was all hands in scrubbing the fishy bits off, when a skimmer I did a turn at HQ1 watch keeper, other than that all I did was lamptramp stuff, and maybe had there been "lean manning" I may have considered my future sooner than I did.

So how does all this apps on mobile phones thing work with ships EmCon policy?

You don't need a signal to run the app, only to download it.

In fact you don't even need that as it can be uploaded from a computer.
 
Anyone notice this?



Hmmn, looks like "2Deck Dash" was streaking on the wrong deck.

The Two-deck loop had a lesser likelihood of being caught, erm apparently.

When I was in Vince and The Ark they had a bit of a ritual where you had to do a 2 Deck Dash successfully before being "allowed" to do a 5 Deck Dash. What you wouldn't want to be is a sprog AB2 on their first draft getting the after cross-passage timing wrong and running straight into the Cdr's leaving the Wardroom after a convivial evening meal, port and cheese. Apparently, it gets a bit painful.....

so it's next to useless as there's no You are Here! big red dot then

Yes. Let's dismiss the idea out of hand without any awareness of how it works. I'm pretty sure they'll have thought the design through thoroughly and it serves it's purpose. Most probably by way of location marking on an interactive map.

As an aside. (And a brilliant one) Our old friend councillor Johnny Bramham, Johnny Bramham, Johnny Bramham has popped up again in the comments section of the original article.

Good times.

My understanding, from reading an article in another publication, is that there are QR codes in compartments which when scanned will show your location on a digital map and offer directions to other locations. I don't know that it'll still be used once its in service fully but you never know.

Sounds like a great idea to me, clever useage of available and popular technology.

So pipe is now attack party muster at QR code squiggle?

Once again, I'm not sure it's intended for use once in service. It will be good for people getting used to the layout initially but it seemed it was more for efficiency for the builders, contractors and crew during the build process. The QR codes were just stuck on bulkheads so it didn't appear too permanent.

And if they build in a, where's my 'phone thingy, (well it works on Startrek) they can see if you are fixing the 20" signalling projector and not sniffing round the lady sailors bunk space

I think its going to be more for the not Royal Navy personnel who get to piggy back off the carrier--RAF and Army.

Now, I know your simply being facetious, but the app is meant for new joiners and to familiarise. Not as a central navigation tool for the fire party cyborgs.

That's what I'm saying but as its Monty that says it's always been thus, I must be wrong, its just I never saw a sickbay tiff or chef doing out but cooking and curing.

SSEP, Vent Party, RAS party, Flat cleaning party, Night cleaning Party, Crash boat crew, all on T23.

I've also worked as a chockhead, nurse and turned to part of ship, chipping and painting.

I'm sure that there are more jobs that I haven't mentioned or remembered.

I'm also aware that other people do jobs that's not their 'part of ship' but this is my experience as a chef.

:drunken:I was hoping that there would be a lot of them. Then there would be a need for some old and bold Acting Local(unpaid) PO to see if he can earn some extra bread by writing " HMS Elizabeth II - the Good Pub Guide".
