I believe this job still exists in the RN. I was wondering what branch Navigatorâ€™s Yeomen are taken from nowadays. It used to be from the Radar Plotters in the Seaman branch, and the course was taken at Dryad. It was a specialisation in its own right and what you did in normal working hours. Are Rotring technical pens with violet ink still used to do chart corrections? Come to think of it do you use charts or is it all on computer now? Also what about star sights (not in the romantic sense) with the Navigating Officer does that happen or is it all GPS? During a RAS or when SSD were closed up for entering harbour does the Navâ€™s Yeo still time and record orders and replies to and from the wheelhouse and engine room? If you can find the time, I would appreciate some info from any serving Navigatorâ€™s Yeomen.
