The heart of the site is the forum area, including:
I am attending the safe deck handling course at HMS Raleigh in oct and was wondering it involves?
The ones I used to attend frequently involved ensuring you could shuffle the pack properly and could spot someone dealing from the bottom!
How to be a safe deck hand?
I thought it was ensuring that you didn't miss the urinal when you were ... oh, deck!
Discussed for RN/RNR here:
its a particularly baws course, involving:
lots of stand easys, (as per RNR standing orders)
how to tie knots,
how to fake down a rope and tie up on a bollard,
a run through of a lot of things you did on your two week basic(putting on the intrepid, entering a service boat, rescue from water)
All in all a course that could, easily be covered in a weekend
"All in all a course that could, easily be covered in a weekend"
So run over a week to ensure that regular matelots can get it ;-)
much like the NMT100 as well...............
Im on it aswell see PM faraday.
Its a pity they cut it 2 days shorter, im well up for 5 days pay for one days work!
Thanks for all the replies. It's only a 3 day course now not 5 days.
Instinct you have a PM mate
It's a course to ensure you remain undeployable for longer. Do yourself a favour, join the TA, do a course, then go on tour.
I did a tour with the TA. It was brilliant. We went to Hampton Court.
Apologies. I meant to say i got my hampton caught.
I think it's the nylon zips, they are much faster than the old metal ones and need considerably more operator care - I am concerned that with the recent announcements on reducing the stringent (some may say obsessive) precautions under Health & Safety at Work legislation by the Coalition Government that more accidents of this nature may occur.
Probably the only thing with teeth that's been anywhere near Blackrat's crotch since Uncle Freddy came round to babysit. And when I say "Uncle" I mean "friend of Granddad". and when I say "babysit" I mean "touch, in his special place".
Anyway, why do we need the TA? We've got the RAF Regiment and MPGS to do all that infantry type stuff, right..?
That was said in confidence. That's the last time i inform for you peeg.
Bite me, sugartits!
