Sorry duggers, but in other threads on the subject of females on board/Royal Marines, I commented that one shouldn't be concerned over the females applying to the combat arms but rather to be concerned about the recruits that can't spell. In one thread you managed to give me some solid evidence that we're lowering the criteria a tad too much.

You managed to spell two out of three words in your title incorrectly. This does not bode well for future memos and written communication from you. I'd hate to be your Div O in attempting to translate what you are trying to say.

I suggest you try and buck up on your spelling of vocabulary you are going to be using on a daily basis before August. I'm not going to try and suggest that you might also try some general punctuation as well.

I'm not trying to beast you, but you really must try harder if you ever hope to be a leader of men.

I'd be more interested in the pass rate for literacy :thumright:

I'm not being funny but there were plenty of Booties that i knew (including myself) whose Spelling and grammer was appauling. This was mainly due to leaving school without any qualifications and just getting on with it. However these persons mentioned including myself have gone on to have good careers including their own businesses etc. My point is that yes this lad does need to get a grip of his basic education but maybe digging him out about it isn't the way forwards.

So ex dags, would you say it's fair to be aware of not passing on a fault?

Good on duggers for his career choice, however, when one volunteers oneself to tutor on the finer points of a naval career (via a written medium), one would or should expect the tutor to at least be able to communicate that knowledge in a format that is comprehensible.

Our soldiers, sailors and airmen have to be smarter these days. Gone are the days of simple widget turning for a career with little or no need for a PhD to do so. Our navies are technologically advanced (ok maybe in some areas) and our communication culture has always been the written format - we just do it electronically now.

Couple that with the present generation of "gimme it now" who simply won't take the time to look up a source or do a simple spell check and it leaves one concerned at what may appear in the logs of a ship.

I hope that our young duggers, will at least do a spell check on any communications that are forthcoming from his offer so that he reinforces that he's not guilty of passing on a fault.

Not at all. I believe that it is a good thing but once noted shouldn't be brought up in every subsequent post.

True enough but i would say that this is more misplaced enthusiasm than anything

Thats a fair point also. But how about the other S.Q's within the services that dont demand technological skills. These are generally the booties in which you quite rightly hold such high esteem.

Couple that with the present generation of "gimme it now" who simply won't take the time to look up a source or do a simple spell check and it leaves one concerned at what may appear in the logs of a ship.

The "gimme it now" generation that are fighting on 2 fronts against a cunning enemy. Some of these "gimme it now" generation are just 18. I dont think your argument stands up on this point.

I hope that our young duggers, will at least do a spell check on any communications that are forthcoming from his offer so that he reinforces that he's not guilty of passing on a fault.
