I am a "new boy" to this august assembly of knowledgeable - but young? - "WAFU's" and I wonder how those in current service feel about the prospect of serving in REAL carriers? (If we get them!) As one of those who served in the the the Ark, Eagle - and even Hermes, Bulwark and Albin before they became taxi platforms for the bootnecks!! - I wonder how much expertise is still available - Will training need to be carried out with the Yanks? Or even - "God forbid" - the frogs? I await the outcome with trepidation, and at my age that word has ominous overtones!!! Bring back the tot!!
