Didn't understand most of that, in a simple yes or no- is it advisable to jump off the sinking ship before even joining following those stats? Answers on a postcard.

In many ways, it depends. Promotion will be rapid, if you're good enough, but there are many reasons why people are leaving, they'll probably (at some point) apply to you.

Lies, damn lies and statistics. Very interesting read though. Thanks for the link - it will be interesting to monitor the changes.

You could fit the entire RN & RM in a football stadium, and still have sh1t loads of seats left!
I know it's the pedant in me, but: Being that football stadiums come in an enormous variety of sizes, this statement is frankly a bit ****ing daft.

If you mean the Aztec Stadium in Mexico then that's a silly statement as the same could be said of most Naval forces.

If you mean Holker Street then that's also a silly statement and we'd all be boycotting the sun and calling for justice for the 96.

It's all about being specific you see and yes, I'm stuck in traffic and have nothing better to do.

They could fit all of the Army (at the new levels), RM and the SM service in to Wembley probably the fleet air arm as well but I can't be arsed doing the exact sums.

I know. It's just you hear that phrase thrown around a lot about fitting into a 'football stadium' and it doesn't really mean anything.

You might as well say: "You can fit all of the RN into a field." Well how big's the ****ing field?
