Questions - Medical Assistant Submariner

Thanks for the info.

As this role is the one that I want the most, a bit of a wait isn't likely to change much, was kind of expecting it. The main reason I want to be an MA (SM) is that, aside from the your main job as an MA, you have extra responsibilities and training on top of it. The wanting to be a submariner part is more simple. I've been told that it takes a special kind of person to be one and I believe I am one.
Oh dear! I don't think boats are for you.

I served on the Renown in the days when HP was carried out by Med Techs. There were issues about the nuclear industry accepting the "paper" qualifications, the HP departments of the nuclear industry being headed by the"old guard" who had worked their way up without any such qualifications. This led to the downgrading of the job to an MA sub specialisation. In those days there were three personnel in a boat's HP department led by a CPO or PO. We were grouped with Stokers but we were required to qualify as planesmen or IDD personnel as our attack team positions.
Don't really know what happens now but it doesn't seem satisfactory.

That still is the routine Bandy,
 
Are you still in, Wrecker? Outside wrecker perhaps?
I hasten to add that I didn't just serve on bombers but SSN01 (but only during refuelling refit) SSN03 (The best of the best SC) and Churchill, SSN04 (S-46).

Been outside 6 years this year but still work within the community, so to speak. I was a bin bag for 18 years (being primary EA sucks) then went wrecker L for the next 12.
