Is mw realy that bad? I wanted to be a diver but got injured during my peda and after being given the ok from my physio was told I'd be to old to try again for diver so I opted for mw instead. Hope I havn't made an error

You'll be fine. MW is pretty much the same as the diving branch. Extra pay, hotels, international flights, chicks, hair gel, piss ups in Hawaii, USA, Oz. You won't notice any difference.

Just my view but if you wanted to be a diver but now can't then I'd say to stay well clear of MW. As a MW you will only ever serve on minehunters so will always be in the presence of divers, a constant reminder of what you couldn't be.

If you go for another branch such as WS or Sea Spec it would be possble to spend your entire career without ever encountering a diver.

I'd been in 20 years before I first had any involvement with a diver.

My career advisor was too busy telling me how to pass my PJFT, which iron to buy, what pjamas to buy, best shoe polish, and a whole host of other useful shit that they don't seem to mention to the youngsters these days....
I accidentley became a diver due to my good looks, witty repartee and total awesomeness !!!

Right think I'll stick with mw then, I did buy a shed load of hair gel in the assumption I'd get to be a diver so shame to waste it.

Due to the advice, and UNBELIEVABLE amount of up their own arse's divers on this subject, I have decided to go for a different route. Thank you to all who give constructed criticism and worth while advice. Spidiver, go drown yourself
