Looking for a challenge

In all the excitement of trying to find out how mattbea gets his jollies, you all missed the comment by SPB about his next ship - so spill the beans - have you got a draft and if so where?

Put at least some of us out of our misery.

BTW, is mattbeas middle name Norman?

No can do - PERSEC! But I will see what Mattbea gets then think about putting in for a swap draft... :twisted:

MattBea has still to gain entry, I believe, and as an emo metro ex-pongo drama queen, he should, with luck, fail to even make it to Raleigh.


I'll tell yer what, I've been called "Norman" a few times... but this teks the pish!!!

Talk about a bitch fight!

I think SPB is underselling himself.

Hardly a fair trade, getting a swap draft with mattbea.

Fair on the ship I mean. Could end up with two crushers.

Or would you be prepared to trade jobs as well?

Lets have an on-line quiz - 20 Qs on NDA and how to set a table for a mess dinner (including napkin folding) to give mattbea a fighting chance.

mattbea has already won the toss (obviously), but as the home team, SPB gets to ask the first Q.

You can join as an Engineer Officer with a physics degree - we have just changed the requirement. As you have received no University sponsorship, you may also be eligible for a £12k joining bonus as well as a starting salsry of at least £28,216-correct 1 Apr 08.
Contact your local AFCO with this info and they will assign you an ACLO (Area Careers Liaison Officer).
Hope this helps.
Good luck

Is this really true? I've been told by the ACLO Lt that Physics (in fact he said ANY degree) was ok, but on a subsequent visit to the AFCO was told by a CPO (who had been in that job a bit longer) that Physics wasn't suitable to be an Engineering Officer. Who/When was the requirement changed?

I'm all confused :?:
