Royal Navy Handymen

1601055149595.pngBack then they were seeking Handymen as Wireless Operators, Signalmen in the RN. Does today's navy need to recruit more "handymen" and fewer specialists with little to specialise over?

@robert2 , your post shows just how much you are out of touch with the modern RN.
Please explain just what the modern Royal Navy is for.
You tell me I am out of touch so please tell me where I've got it wrong.
What is today's navy for?
The RAF seem to have sufficient air power quickly to deal with any problem it would take the RN with its ongoing
Ship/Crew problems a rather long time to get there.
I hope I'm wrong But am I and why?
 
Please explain just what for...

Place your cudgels to one side and reflect -

As a whipping boy the modern Royal Navy has served both your pater Norman and your goodself in continuation very well in the past whilst keeping the pair of you from inflicting any real and lasting damage.

So - With your 'Codgers with Cudgels* placards held aloft - Step off with your left foot and brandish 'em boldly!

It'll keep the N brand going for a wee while longer and might even clear the surrounding air from the smell of age, decay, and cedar mirth-bills if nowt else.

The navy's role today is the same as it was in your day, as for the RAF they have to get to airfields, plus stores and accommodation for ground crew.
You may not have noticed but the QE sailed recently with RAF and USMC F35's on board.

What the flying fid do you think the 'Modern' RN is for? Are you that far gone?

Re the RAF - yup your wrong. You need think about the logistics of moving aircraft, crews, spare parts, fuel, weapons to far flung parts of the globe. Not an overnight job shifting that lot even with a handful of A400's

Now a carrier group - Flat Tops, RFA's and escorts. Moving - complete with all the support with them. Even the facility to produce mapping!!!!

As an aside, Do you have any loyalty to the service you claim to have served in?

I ask before I add you to my 'Ignore' list with the rest of the muppets!!

The Commanding Officer of RAF 617 Squadron fielding the F35's is though, a Royal Navy officer.
Yes he is a Royal Navy Commander pilot. But--
He has only served with the RAF and in the States since qualifying at RAF Cranwell as a pilot in 1996
He has served:-
RAF Shawbury
RAF Valley
RAF Oakham
RAF Wittering and currently:-
RAF Marham
Nothing to do with loyalty just realism.

@robert2 We have kept our fast jet skills alive by training and operating with the RAF and US forces
The UK as a whole is too small to have separate flying schools for each service.
If 617 CO flew harriers he would have been based at some stage at RAF wittering as strangely enough that was where Joint Force Harrier was based and has been since 2000.

We gave specialist in the service as the kit we play with now is a lot more advanced than it was in your day. We might be smaller in size and have problems but we can still do the job required of us the same as the RN of old could.

Have a look at what we are doing and have a bit of pride in the service.
Everyone knows the RN has changed and it was always better in my day due to X,Y & Z so tell us what you enjoyed.

You could try spinning a few dits that we could enjoy but keep the modern RN bashing out of it. Have a bit of banter but dont be the poisonous one in the corner.

What @redmonkey said!!
My point is that a serving Royal Navy officer is qualified enough to command a joint service squadron even if the boys in blue forget to tell the British public that fact and hammer on about the 'history' of 617.
I've older under pants!! (So god knows when yours were last washed).
