Sorry if this is a bit late but I know of one oppo of mine who has recently gone back to sea in the RFA. He was an RN Sparker and was back in civvy street working for a bank when he was made redundant. Following his RFA comms. training, which he passed with top marks, he is now back at sea, presently aboard the Mounts Bay, and absolutely LOVING it !!!! He is in his 50's too and they take people on up to 56 years of age I think. From the sound of it the standard of accomodation aboard RFAs these days is amazing. He has en-suite cabin with all mod cons. Sat. TV, internet etc. and his rank, I think, is the equivalent of a senior AB or Killick !!!!tufty said:My neighbours son is wanting to join the RFA. Did anyone go on to serve in the RFA and got anything to say about it - good, bad, etc?
