LOL Seaman specialists "just do knots" (don't tell the Buffer that!). It's like "Communicators just wave flags", Engineers "just stoke the boilers", Electricians "just mend plugs", the CO "steers the ship"......

But to try and answer seriously, my mate whos joinning up as one said that they:-
A- Pilot the ribs
B- Fire the smaller guns
C- Do knots
D- Co-ordinate OR do all unusual evolutions (right word?) by themselves. For example, getting the stuff ready for RAS, preparing to tow other ships etc etc.
E- Help out in the stores compartments
F- Chip and paint

And thats all I can remember at the moment from what he told me...
And hey, all that could be completely wrong.

What, am I supposed to be impressed with those qualifications? Try and aim a bit higher in life. You are a dullard who wants to be in every branch in the navy-om, seaman spec etc. Make your mind up.....

I won't tolerate fcukwits on this board....

Well I've got a BA in languages, an MA in law, 6 various A levels 9 various O levels, an NVQ in Hospital Theatre Work, and several other minor qualifications.

If you won't tolerate fcukwits, then Specs and aspiring specs should no longer be seen. Oh, and divers, cementheads and branch failing ratcatchers and club swingers..........

PS I told lies, somewhere among my many possessions I have a copy of my ET1.
Still managed to make my way in life.
Robbo, grow up mate, make up your mind what you want and go for it, boasting (whether its true or not) will get you no where, especially in the Services. Now Bullshit is another matter

im not boasting, just to say i dont have an education is an insult...so i had to say something...and i am trying to make my mind up. but i want to know the options open to me. whats wrong with that?

The fact that you claim to be educated, yet still can't express yourself in writing makes you seem even more of a numnuts.

IRT your original question, the Seaman Spec branch is about to become direct entry, and take on some of the gunnery/tactical comms role. Consult your local AFCO for the gen.


Btw, notice how I have used abbreviations\slang in this post without turning it into unreadable gibberish

I suppose once you have been through the royal navy trades,you will start on the others.Quick typing is no excuse for bad spelling,try reading what you have written before you press the submit button,i should know ive got degrees in yiddish and gibberish.
