Help please- Submarine Service?

#1
Hello, I was wondering if I could have a little help with a branch I heard about some time ago but I can't remember very much about it!

I think it was called 'SubSunk' and was a branch centred around rescuing sunken submarines (obviously!)

Can nayone point me in the direction of more information regardin gthis branch, the work they do and where members come from- are they ex-MCDs, submariners etc?

Thanks!

I don't know any more than that - I just remember seeing the link. The may be more on wiki or similar, and perhaps the RN handbook but I've not looked.

Oh dear. Well, as you can see that link takes you to an information page - information on how a particular task is carried out. It is not part of the 'jobs' page.

In short, you cannot be recruited directly into the SPAG team (the persons that would work with the LR5 amongst doing other tasks).

I won't post here how to get into SPAG because you cannot do it direct from civvy street.

Hope this helps.

Whats the harm in posting the SPAG route of entry? Is it hush, hush? Even the SBS route is known...

No harm in giving someone something to aim for or what is required is there.

Yeah. Come on Polto, come clean and dish out the info, or is it Tip Top Secret and you'd have to kill us if you told us.
