The Naval Engineer, Autumn 2013

What an excellent letter from a totally ROMFT WO2 on page 30. Think he spoke for the whole branch there.

Also can't believe they had to get scrap from Ark Royal in a Turkey to fix Illustrious. Phew! Close one!

More to the point, how much did the RN have to pay to get the bit of kit back from the scrapyard?

Yet another indication from our lords and masters that they haven't got the foggiest idea what they're doing.

All the more concerning as some would consider CDRE Shipperley one of our more talented and down to earth senior engineers.

I don't think the reply should be read as 'We know we're f*cked and we don't have a clue how to fix it'. More We know we're f*cked but the suits wont front the cash'

Just put this about at work today. Not surprised at all at the tone of the letter but I was absolutely shocked at the response from DCNEO. Not one answer to any question raised. Take risk and seek forgiveness rather than ask for permission? What the ****?!!!!
