They dream of being Stokers but don't have a high enough RT score (they are called Jack Dusty, mainly because they think they're Jack and all the stores are dusty because it's been sat on the shelf for so long)

So glad someone put the record straight.

Logs(Supply Chain) definitely aren't stokers, however as a Petty Officer stoker on mine hunters or sweepers they can expect to undertake stores accounting as well as maintaining most of the machinery that isn't main engines or generators, together with watchkeeping (keeping shifts).

whats the nickname for a logistics stores accountant in the navy ?
Gregor,

As stated by one, we were called Jackdusties / White Mice, though with this navy they could be called anything these days.

We were used in all departments when I served, Ops room, Gunbay,Magazine, Shellroom, Seacat mount and RASing (after all the others had turned in to their pits).

But they all want to be a Dusty's friend when they want something

;)

They may dream of such privileges, but it's never going to happen. :wink:

Ah, you see, that is a common misconception.

It's not because "you're not entitled".

It is, in fact, because the dusties have eaten them.

You're more than welcome.

I found that the same applied when I wanted some batteries for my walkman (an ancient type of 'what's-it pod' for the juniors here).

No wonder they were a bit wide-eyed and spikey-haired.
 
No offence like, but what possessed you to even think that Jack Dusty would contemplate giving you batteries for your Walkman?
