Merchant Navy to RNR

What sort of opportunities would be available for a person with Deck Coc unlimited and FD in Nautical Science?

Evening,

Two branches would be looking to use you:
a) Amphibious Warfare, this deals with ship loading (usually working with green uniformed bods putting toys onto MN assets) where your knowledge of loading, and merchant shipping, is used to avoid the two factions going to war with each other, rather than HM enemies.

b) Merchant shipping liaison (MTO) this is the liaison with MN shipping still going on with its own trade and tasking, but giving advice to the Masters on what is occurring and where it might not be best to route his/her ship.

I'd like to be able to say that they would use you as an OOW on a big grey thing, but that tat is not going to happen, IMHO. either the RN, or the MCA, would find reasons for it not to happen. However we are now being pushed towards supplying more crew for the Batch One OPV's and opportunities may well begin to develop there. I do know RNR's that are looking to be used for boarding tasking - your knowledge of ships would be very helpful when arriving on an unknown floaty thing.

Does that help at all?
BH
