    I believe there is an orderly queue forming.....
  4. Why would a Bridge Card be of any help to the AIB - unless you're going to be standing at Round Tower expecting a salute!

    OK, one for the geeks, reference the bridge card: Why do we need a Flag Officer for Scotland, Northern England & Northern Ireland but not one for Wales, the Midlands, & Southern England?
  6. err....for teh lulz?

    You need to hang with the kids Jimbo.

    I didn't know either.

    Youg scruff, the bridge card may be of use for what ships are based where if you are asked at AIB but who is CO of HMS / RFA Nonsuch and their seniority date isn't important.
  8. I never mentioned that, nor was it my intended meaning. sorry.

    There was a discussion about this in the newbies section, and when I saw it down on the most recent, I thought this was there. my mistake, sorry for sounding like some wierd ********
  9. Because there used to be a Flag Officer Plymouth and Flag Officer Portsmouth, who divided up the rest of the UK between them. The divisions can still be seen in things like recruiting boundaries and the diving unit areas of responsibilities.
  10. Also, I saw something on the news about training near the Hebrides, I may hazard a guess that also is related?

    And indeed welfare areas.

    Presumably the post of Flag Officers Pompey & Guzz come under the command of Admirals with an increased portfolio of responsibilities, with a primary post title of higher import.
