The above are some of the most regular and beneficial weekend training opportunities i have ever attended. Real working ship, real RN crew, real up to date in use equipment and relevant serials, there isnt much more an RNR could ask for. I have heard two conflicting stories about these. Both may be true but i would prefer someone in authority (Masterchief maybe??) to give me the truth, sorry i mean the official line. I have been told that the MCMV weekends have now been stopped and that training is now to be undertaken on FOST tanker. In the same week i recieved a calling notice (not via my RTC) to attend one of the afforementioned weekends in October. It could be that AWFP have been stopped from attending these weekends regularly but the weekends continue for MW ratings. If we are to train on the FOST tanker instead does this mean we will be joining it for the occasional weekend? Can't see it to be honest. Is this another peice of really useful training snatched from our sweaty little fingers? Help.
