Specialising in warfare...

#1
I am applying for warfare in the hope that I'll be able to specialise as an HMO one day (I know that there are no guarantees etc, but would be nice if I can at some point). But have read somewhere that everyone who is currently doing that job wears sandals and socks, etc etc...(can imagine the sort from my uni days!). Just wondering, is it the sort of job that is really hard to get into cos these guys keep it for 20 odd years? It's not going to affect my application in any way but would like to prepare myself if it's not going to happen. Would be good to hear from anyone who works as or with these guys, thanks! :)

Yeah I know Hecla, I was more looking at HMS Endurance though.

And witsend...a room indeed!! I'm in a room right now thanks!! :lol:
From my limited experience :wink: i think both the Endurance and Hecla would be a rather different kind of draft than the normal,ie Hecla used to go to some pretty distant out of the way places where your everyday GS ships could only dream of going,Endurance was ok if you like the ice and cold wind swept places,

I rather think witsend was implying Nchris should be in it with you...

Yeah I did drag it up, but it's saturday and I was bored, and thought that it would get some amusing offerings as to what 'HMO' means. Fail, methinks.
