RAF have literally three jobs going, maybe, if you're lucky, and the Navy waiting times are getting ridiculous too it seems.
What branch have you applied for Dean?

Good.

And as for wanting to join the RAF, have a fucking word sunshine. You're much better off with the Army and failing that, the Andrew. :D

The title "The Andrew" is interestingly seldom used by those actually serving nowadays unless ironically, but frequently used by those with former Naval service.

The latter appear to use the phrase to wind-up the former, but also to alert them to the fact that a long, drawn-out recollection of how things used to be, is inbound. It works a treat & can clear bars in a base port area on the last working day of the month within seconds. (Handy when there's a queue at the bar) :wink:
