Moving up the ranks on small vessels


Hi, I was wondering if anyone could tell me what the chances are of moving up the ranks in the mine warfare branch, and if anyone has served or is serving as a mine warfare specialist what happens on a daily basis ? Where are you deployed ect...

I wasnt a muppet but it seemed alright upto senior rate level then it's dead mans shoes (as one leaves one gets promoted)

Sea time away are incredibly high compared with other branches but I had 4 sweepers and on my last (HMS Brecon which is now at Raleigh) I was promoted at my first shout

So it's there to be taken if that's what you want to do
