This is SUCH a gash question I didn't even put it in Newbies

Discussion in 'The Fleet Air Arm' started by WhizzbangDai, Jul 3, 2009.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I can't believe I'm going to ask this.

    I checked online.

    I looked through all my material, pamphlet after pamphlet.

    However - i'm applying for BRNC Britannia Association Membership and I can't remember what the letter is for the Pilot/Faa specialisation.

    I realise I could always guess and change it later, but I may as well ask, and anyway it'll bug me if I guess at 'P'.

    Abuse fine so long as someone gives me an answer lol.
  2. Whizz, while I can't answer your question, you have been on the website long enough now to really no longer be considered a newbie, and don't need to use the newbies forum for every question under the sun. There is a forum for the FAA which is where I would have posted the question, certainly not in the Gash Barge.

    :oops: :oops: Pilot is Jockey! and aircraft is Cab! :wink: :wink: :wink: FAA is Wafu! :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: Now send your letter off Waanabe Snotty :oops: :oops: :oops:
  4. Re: This is SUCH a gash question I didn't even put it in New


    Which bit of the form asks you to give a special letter for Pilot?
  5. Lol fine fine fine

    It's under all the listings for personal details, it asks for my specialization' then lists a whole load of letters

    X, L, ME, WE, AE, E(TM), P, O, ATC

    I'm guessing the one I want to circle is 'P' for 'Pilot' but just to sure etc

    See why its in the gash barge lol?
  6. My bold
    Haha I'm not in quite yet, I still consider myself very new! :D

    Scouse, I told you, I'll be a 'Wet' ;)
  7. :oops: :oops: Can you guess what the O stands for??????? :roll: :roll: go in as a SNOTTY the extra training will come in helpfull
  8. Re: This is SUCH a gash question I didn't even put it in New

    The form I'm looking at at the moment (online) actually has Pilot as a choice in that section - are you looking online or at a hard copy?
  9. Surely it should be AE (Air Executive). :lol:

    You're right, it is a bad question.

    So bad, that we don't want Woo questions sullying the Gash barge, so I've moved it for you. :lol:
  11. It's the hard copy i got with my instructional pamphlets and assorted forms for BRNC they sent.

    A rainforest worth of paper

    I've jusy cicled 'P' and damn the consequences!
  12. Re: This is SUCH a gash question I didn't even put it in New

    Good for you. You'll need to be decisive occasionally as a 'Pusser'. :twisted: :p
  13. Oh bugger, do I really? Don't they have people for that sort of thing? I'd rather such swan about looking spiffy in my nice uniform.

    I do hope they don't expect me to have to lead anyone. That would be rather daunting ;)

    Oh dear, the "P" you say?

    If it doesn't mean Pusser, it may refer to "P Company" which is a rather physically arduous element of the Parachute Regiment training.

    Never mind, just ask your butler to do that bit for you... :wink:

    Of course it could simply mean: Padre.

    So, best you get used to buttoning your shirt up the back, wearing unfeasibly large prosthetic buck teeth & Lennon glasses. (Not that we type-cast individuals in the RN).
  15. Aircrew swan about looking scruffy in their unwashed grow bags, whilst objecting to engineers wearing their daily changed overalls in the mess...
  16. Why do engineers change their overalls daily? Lets face it they do no physical work and modern engine rooms hardly cause copious quantities of perspiration. :oops:
    Perhaps it due to them falling over and crawling back to the cabin on hands and knees after a nights imbibing. :p
  17. Re: This is SUCH a gash question I didn't even put it in New

    Aircrew are part of the X branch, surely
  18. That's Warfare but I think but it's not a Specializtion. I hope.

    Well then i'll have to be the first ever well dressed wafu, won't I. Trend setter, and all that ;)
  19. don't know if this helps but as a phot, and member of the fleet air arm, I have 'P' under my branch badge on my nos 1's?
  20. To late Snotty :wink: :wink: Vice Admiral Richard Bell Dvies VC CB DSO AFC was the first 8) 8) :wink: :wink:
