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!!
