  1. I'd just like to know about the role, training and what they do on land. I've searched the forums and only came across two threads involving being an STC

  5. So, are STC's attached to 3 Cdo Brigade when on the ground? And what's their role when on the ships?

  6. Suchlike Qs & As involve OPSEC (this specialisation is carefully Moderated) so sorry - cannot help you.

    Edit To Add

    BTW - Sp. correction: It's Coxswain, pronounced "Cox'n".

    Be Warned - If you put "Coaxswain" on an application some folk may take the p*ss...

  7. So you can apply straight at the AFCO?
  8. STC is strictly a sea going position, however due to the intense stresses and nature of the job it does attract a fair bit of time both recovering from operations and further training ashore.
    It has been found that those who can surf well make better candidates than those who have never surfed, until you have wiped out on a ST you have never lived (or should that be died)
  9. Slow day on the presses then.
  10. Not sure if wah, or just plain innocence...

    All jokes aside though a great branch.
  11. you are quiet correct... Slim. But Charlie don't surf" :happy6:
  12. Splash Target Coaxswain?

    I think you will find that very few STC make it back to land.

  13. Everyone gets redirected to Navy Net because........well, because STC is and always will be spoken of in hushed tones.
    Bear Grylls used to be one - and if you've seen HIM on the box, you should realise that STC's got some crazy shit
    going on.

  14. Another want to be STC straight out of the box. Will they never learn. STC are steel eyed bringers of death and are not common men. To do the job takes every ounce of guts you have. Try the Paras its easier. Trust me i know.

    Getting a little slack on OPSEC here aren't we? Don't mislead the guys who are interested...the Branch is not easy to enter and it will take years of dedication. Cool it!
