  11. As a former SMQ instructor,I can say in my time,2005-2008 at SMQ,we only sent one back to GS that did not make the grade as a submariner,I can't help but think there is more to this than PMU for boats? Over to you OP
  12. i left by putting my own chit in,iwasn't binned. they wouldn't let me try v boat smq after tho, ihad to remain gs, should've fought against it like

  13. As an ex Phase 2 S/M DO, I'm a tad confused about how you were made PMU for boats. You say were put T boat SMQ after asking for V boats and then left in Faslavatory with no chance of getting a ship? If you were T boat SMQ, what were you doing in Faslane? and why was there no chance of getting a surface draft. I'm taking it that you failed the T boat SMQ, but that wouldn't make you PMU.
  14. WreckerL were you at SMQ(S)?
  15. I was at Raleigh Barney (2003 - 2007) in Mackenzie Squadron, so worked with SMQ(S) and (N). You used to send your bad boys back for us to DUDT (not that I'm bitter about all the paperwork we had to do ;) )

  16. Dear god,did we have that many?
    Back on thread,will the RN not see him a a training risk?
  17. It wasn't that many TBH Barney but back on thread.

    It could be seen as a training risk but some of the story doesn't add up IMO.
