MW have been having them for years, (for SR's & Officers). One year it was held on Victory, followed by the gatecrashing of a Medical Branch Dinner at KA the same evening, now the stuff of legend within the Branch. Recent years have not lived up to the same levels of mischief!!!

Why dont the powers to be try inviting junior rates as well then, or is our conversation likely to be below standard...Yes as per usual SR's and Officers only, lets face it the world revolves around senior rates and officers..where would we be without them...!! :twisted: .... and its them that make the difference at the coal face and win all the battles isnt it!!!

If there's one thing that pisses me of is branch eliteism...if youre not prepared to invite everyone in a branch then its not a branch dinner is it...its a private function for the select few!!!

Because there are no JR's in the MW branch!
 
GSSR/MW Dinner will be held on March 10 2007 if memorary is correct. Should be a good night with CDRE Miller as the guest speaker if the stories are true.

Hopefully a night of serious drinking and partying. Not sure how much though as it appears to be at the Police school at DRYAD!!!!

The fact that Im a qualified Leading Rate MW (hopefully) on my way to being a PO(MW) in an MCMTA is an illusion then is it!!

No JR's in the MW branch is a myth Im afraid I was promoted to this rate before GSSR and was qualified under the old system, so whilst I am in the GSSR branch and do the SPO etc I am streamed in the MW specialisation.!!

How do you think further PO(MW)'s are going to be spawned to fill MCMTA spaces taken by PO's/CPO' that are reaching the end of the RNR careers...magic!!..You need Junior rates to get senior rates...or am I missing something!!!

Ok I'm being facetious. Agree with everything you're saying about the MW spec, but that's a debate for another thread.

The debate about inviting MW (then GSSR) JR's to the MW Conference weekend (and dinner on the Sat night) did take place. The final reason was for just SR's/Officers but it had nothing 'them and us' but was due to the target audience for the weekend as a whole i.e. MCMTA Battlestaff. (this is in the days before ORA's where conceived for the MCMTA)
Not sure what the plan is for next year. PM me and i'll point you in the direction of the organising committee.

Xmas Dinner in our unit takes the form of a Mess Dinner, for SR's and JR's. Food cooked and served by the Wardroom! (no fatalities, YET!)

Steady, I know where you live!

I know where you live as well....and I've tasted your cooking!

So it can't be that bad, you survived long enough to post here :lol:
Given his current location, food is not the problem!
 
The Air Branch has two every year... total branch size precludes an all ranks event. The Officers one, from my expereince is v.well attended and become one of the highlights of the Fleet Air Arm Social Calendar
