I think that the medics that went ashore to provide aid and advice, the engineers that made repairs to infrastructure ashore and the WAFUs that flew during that effort and the warfare teams that planned the ops and drove the ship might object to that statement, what happened to 'all of one company'?

hi guys,

just looking into specialisations as well.

what areas can LO go into? I've saw a video mentioning the AACC, would this mean linking up with the Commando Logistics Regiment etC? any other specialisations would be great to know about
 
I presume Jim is somewhere else. Because I'm on my phone, in brief, loggies can do logistics, executive support, naval and operational law or management accountancy. You'll specialise in one, maybe 2 of them. AACC is available, from what I remember there are 6 or 7 posts that require it.

Thanks, that's useful.

I was also wondering what my long term promotion opportunities would be like. I am right in thinking the only way to become a ship's captain is to go down the warfare path?

I know that logistics will always involve admin, and desk work, but it would be good to know that you get involved in some more exciting stuff once in a while - and that it isn't a dead end in terms of promotion.

I'm also trying to work out which branch gives you more transferable skills in the civvie world (my interest is in NGOs, and international bodies like the UN).

Thanks for all the responses so far by the way, I've found them really useful.

entering as a rating could I consider AACC?

The only assured route gaining a green beret is by joining as a Royal Marine. Whilst theoretically possible to undertake AACC, there are very few Officer or Ratings that are actually employed in a Commando role - if there were, the billet would be male only.

just filled out my officer application form. The questions relating to AIB, values, courage etc - anyone got any tips for those sections?

Also allergic to Penicillin, had a bad reaction when i was young. Should I prepare anything (medical notes etc) for the medical to save on delays etc?

Has anyone got contacts for a serving logistics officer who may be willing to talk to me directly and answer a few questions i have before taking the plunge? Also would it be best to just crack on with the application and see what happens rather than diddle around not applying until the questions i have are answered?
