J/r's conspicuous by their absence

#1
Who recalls how few J/R's there were at FAA's Centenary Bun Fight at Buck House?

My wife and I saw a three badged SBA (MA) sitting quietly with his mother:
We talked to three non-drinking --They offered us their Champagne-" Joint Harrier Force" charming lads who explained that they had served over three years but had spent a little under two weeks at sea and currently serving at a RAF Base under RAF control ---Help!! But precious few others Why? We talked to a Chief Mechanic and his charming wife who explained that fior the last 12 years of his service he hasn't set foot from Culdrose--Help!

A proliferation of uniformed W.O.'s Chiefs P.O.'s Captains Commanders and others Why?
Does the Royal Navy currently have more P.O.s and above than Hands?
That it doesn't know what to do with?

That's probably because whilst everyone else was galavanting around at posh tea parties and jollys, all the JR's were doing all the actual work back at their respective bases.

As an SR I can say that, because it's true!

Quite right too - can't have a load of damn dirty JRs stinking up the place :D
Clearly that was Rear Admiral's (Aviation) intention when he invited his chosen, very few, Leading and Naval Airmen ( or whatever they're called today) to attend. Their were precious few in evidence I am saddened to say.
