Hi all, can anybody help me out, I'm an ex RN Submariner and I was looking at applying for the RFA as an Engineering Apprentice, is this the old motorman branch? And also is it true that there is a shortage of them?
Thanks in advance.

There is indeed a shortage. Go for it.

I have my interview tomorrow, for Catering Assistant Chef. I'm an ex-stoker too, but I know they are looking for Stewards.

BTW, I applied beginning of Feb, and had the psychometric test on the 27th of March.

As far as I am aware of the ship is in UK waters then u wud join her in a UK port, since most RFA ships are deployed abroad then u wud fly out and meet her where ever she may be, just like the RN

Cheers, it will be strange to go back to a naval base under training lol I take it the RFA are left alone with regards to night rounds and all the other bollocks that came with the mob!

I have no idea about that, but from what I know and been told it's a much more relaxed environment compared to the mob, if there is night rounds I wud guess it wud be more of an informal walk around just to make sure areas are clean and tidy
