RNR Warrant Officers

Am I being cynical or is the recent introducton of RNR WO's just another tier in an already top heavy management structure, after all we have lived without them for years and they have no war role.
 
Interesting question... I think it ties in more closely with the other services I know the TA have them and I am sure the crabs do too.

As to their war role, I am sure that is down to the functional employers and let's face it we can hardly call their current requirements fixed.

I don't know about your WO, but in the event of another mobilisation, I don't know what would stop my WO from forming up with the rest of the RNRs on the Battlestaff.

Don't know about war role but the WO for my branch is doing a lot of mileage to get shit sorted out and he has been at the sharp end of things to know what pile needs to be sorted first.

Think on the whole it's a good thing, especially as we are trying to integrate more (and it gives ex RN WO's the opportunity to transfer across). Was slightly concerned however that it all seemed to be rushed through without any guidance on what to do to get there and it seemed to be almost a random selection process. Did also hear the rumour that they where appointments to fill particular jobs, therefore some had been offered it but turned it down on the grounds that their career would end when the appointment did.

DOn't know about "No war role", I went on a Joint exercise a couple of years ago, (while the CIS sub-specialisation was still in gestation) and the requirement from the Pongos was SO3 or WO - they ended up with a subbie, a CPO and a PO. Certainly in the CIS world, if we're going to be doing joint working, then having a couple of WOs about could be useful, since in the Army environment mere CPOs and POs don't count!

Same thing happens with many 2 1/2s who get offered their 3rd ring. Very, very limited opportunities once you have it so best done just before you retire!
