Level of detail required for service knowledge in Selection Interview and then AIB?

Hi all,

I'm curious as to the level of detail required for service knowledge during the selection interview and how this progresses to the AIB? For example, being familiar with all the classes of ship, boat, aircraft is something I expect but will I need to know specifications (speed, complement, displacement etc)? Or will a broad knowledge trump detail in this case?

Many thanks!

Sparky

An unusually helpful reply from Blackrat, truly he must see your potential, either that or he must be slipping you a length. The only alternative speculation is that the Blackrat has lost the plot.

Sometimes amigo, i just can't be arsed. To be honest, i usually run riot in Lil's and leave the newbies forum alone. Unless there is a spectacular mong here that is.
 
To be honest how hard can service knowledge be?? No T22 No FAA No Aircraft Carriers Hmmmmmm T23 and 45 plus a floating helo deck of a hulk! Thats your navy!!! The good luck won't be needed for you AIB, it will be needed as a future officer running the future lean manpower coastal defence force.

My knowledge of the Navy falls into three categories;

Rum
Sodomy
The lash

As to anything else, i'm clueless.
 
Sorry, also forgot that we have No T42 either.... In all honest try the Australian navy for a change of scenery, better future prospects and a solid pension plan (As it stands today lol)

I apologise, I do stand corrected. We have ONE!!! Mighty T42. (Might I add who’s days are numbered) I merely wish to make the point we no longer seem to have a FLEET, whisked away from in front of your eyes faster than a scran counter full of 4 O’clockers. You can play the loyalist and sing praise but the truth is no longer do we have the quality or quantity in man nor fleet.

HMS York still going as well at the moment.

Oh and speak for yourself regarding the quality of man in the Navy, you maybe a gash hand.

Thank you Soleil. Helped to verify a few things I'd already found which I'm very glad for.

Another question (sorry to be cheeky). With regards to deployments, the RN page seems to be particularly vague. Apart from the obvious like the HMS Clyde being on patrol around the Falklands, I've pieced together where some ships are/will be based on the latest news articles - would this be enough coupled with the knowledge of the specific Naval operations/operational areas?

As far as deployments are concerned, if you are reading Navy News in hard copy each month, that should give you the information you need. Supplement that with browsing the news section of the RN website. Perhaps pin up a map of the globe and draw on it where ships are at the moment.

Don't forget to inform yourself on aircraft and boats and also where the RN (RM) might be active on land.

Identify the roles which the Royal Navy plays - humanitarian relief, anti-piracy, anti-narcotics, fisheries, stuff like that.

PS Be able to identify ships from photos of them.

Incredible, thanks again Soleil. You are a gentleman and a scholar. Hopefully hearing from the AFCO in the next few days when my interview will be.

The only good thing about being a recent graduate is the copious amount of time I now have to read about the RN and train!
