Landing Craft Officer?

Discussion in 'The Corps' started by bjid, Mar 4, 2011.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Is the landing craft officer specialisation a popular/competitive specialisation?

    also if you qualify, what are the chances you will be posted to an assault squadron?

    saying that can you be posted to an assault squadron straight after passing out?
    - what are the requirements etc.
  2. How long is a piece of string? Once an Ossifer has done his Troop leadership bit he's gotta go somewhere, boatie yachtie sailorly types may find the lure of smally craft attractive.
    Assault Squadrons need Ossifers too, so quite likely.
    For the umpteenth hundredth time....NO. The Corps prefers to have it's Ruperts well and truely versed in the craft of soldiering by exposure to their olders and betters, namely Fighting Company Troop Sergeants.:slow:
    In other words you will be expected to expand and develop your leadership qualities by leading a troop of gravs for a bit.
    Awfully tiresome I know, not being able to gad about in RIBs and other smally boats with your Commando daggar gripped between your teeth, but you must learn to walk etc.
    The same as for any other Royal Marine Officer have a look at the RN/RM Careers website or pop into your local AFCO for details.:evil3:
