Lesson one....Pongos and crabs get posted.............jack gets drafted/shafted, same thing.
Lesson two....Get through your training.
Lesson three...Complete a Drafting Preference Form, stating that you'd like to serve on Minesweepers.
....mate of mine did that and he got Ark Royal......drafty has a wicked sense of humour.

30,670 serving members of the RN. Carrier complement 679.
Assuming you make it through training I will therefore give you odds of around 45/1. Odds halving upon arrival of HMS Prince Charlie.
 
What trade are you going in as? Is the tractor a reference to NA(AH) or are you just into tractors?

No likely if you are going in as Mine Warfare.

Filth pure filth.

 
Did a test and have a licence (license) for one of these? Not sure if it's still in date?

Puerto Rico 1998. Absolute pig to drive!

Think I might need an eye test... I thought his post on his other thread said his dad was going to feed him to the sheep...

We all get assigned via JPA now.

Not withstanding the, getting out of training - becoming totally disillusioned and becoming one of the many that spend time actively avoiding any sea draft!!!! I assume they do still exist - disillusioned I mean not sea drafts!!!!!

I think so. I'm sure I heard someone talk in hushed tones about one the other week. It was an AB though.
