The roles of the RNR have to be a requirement of the Royal Navy, not of what would prove a clear role. That's why we have functional employers.aarcc said:Well not suprising.
Having SD back would give the RNR a clear role and I'm sure the Contigency Planning Authorities would welcome having the RNR ready to use for port & key point defence.
That wouldn't have been the Carron down in Brizzle would it? I wasn't on her for that exercise, but later joined a crew with a large proportion of Brave Defender personnel - it was quite disconcerting at times when the Skipper uttered his helm orders in a fake Russian accent and started waxing lyrical about the time that the Soviet vessel Carron-ski had conducted a single handed invasion of the South West - he particularly took great delight in ignoring all orders and creating, in his words, total mayhem.Deckhead_Inspector said:Not in the SD branch but had great fun commanding a PDP in Exercise Brave Defender in the 80s. Lots of shooting at the Army when they attacked the PHQ. Refined one's prisoner handling techniques with captured divers and a great punch up when we boaded a "Soviet" MSF.
