Logistics Officer

Hi Guys,

I'm in the process of applying for Logistics Officer and was wondering if anyone could enlighten me further on the job information?

I have read the literature given out by AFCO, however I would definitely be interested to hear more, such as who I would be likely to work for, what offices could I be attached to, are there any secondary duties etc?

Basically I just wanted to do as much research as possible and any hints would be greatly appreciated!

Thanking you in advance.... :happy11:
 
Secondary duties I understand are to:

- dish out advice on legal, personnel and accountancy matters to your CO
- lead battle damage control and first aid

but what do i know?

Oh yeah, the Logs Officer is also i/c "out of date" Mars Bars, Benson's Crisps shareholder, and procurer of spam in a cling-film wrapped bread roll, negat butter. Oh, and supplier of bruised apples to HM the Armed Forces, by appointment.
 
Also to oversee the disposal of accidentally damaged crates received during a ras... (or normally delegated to the SA's, hard job..) That of course is not counting those that got waylaid along the ras route...

Thanks for the help guys! Didn't realise people still ate spam :eek:

Every ship carries a consignment of the stuff. Just in case the hull is breached and we run out of hardwood wedges and pad pieces... :wink:
