Not an Old Salt, but going through the system again, having successfully passed once, and there not being enough places... not that I'm bitter...!

All the best mate, have fun in applying its a case of hurry up and wait! Ask your ACLO to get you an Acquaint course.

Welcome,

A simple thought from an old seadog, it would`nt be just for the bounty and then scarper, would it?
 
No, I am also looking into warfare officer general service, and Ill probably serve for as long as the mob will have me. Mr hig, the real reason I am considering the submarine service is not for the bounty but in fact because I think that the shiny gold dolphins wil look nice on my uniform.

Hello Sam!

As someone who is on the verge of going in (41 days not that I'm counting!), i think you'll find Page 4 of the AIB topic extremely useful!

Everything people say about the AIB is from there own experience, some love (like me) and some hated the AIB but if you go in there with a positive mind then you will get out what you put in!

Good luck for the future

Andy
 
KLNA, i have inclinations that you may be extremely biased in your assertion of wings being superior to dolphins. All credit to the pilots/observers tho, much respect for you boya and girls.

Not as nice as a wrens snail trail....

Best of luck.
