"Training by Video" the new approach to promotion

I would invite any suggestions as to suggested film viewing that substitutes proper task book training and will help you fast track to promotion...!!

I think that the trilogy of Cruel Sea ,In Which We serve and Master & Commander could probably replace most of Raleigh well certainly for RNR's anyway!

I learnt not to salute an officer indoors if he hasnt got his hat on from the Cruel Sea..they didnt even mention it at Raleigh!
 
Re: "Training by Video" the new approach to promot

Das Boot - the realities of war and privations of life beneath the oggin

The Cruel Sea - routine, what Britain expects and that sailors scream when drowning (very haunting)...

Mutiny on the Bounty (the version starring Anthony Hopkins) - why you need to keep an eye on unruly baby officers

Britain's Youngest Sailors (BBC documentary) - training, what you need to learn and the importance of a sense of humour and a posh accent

Blue Peter [not technically a film, though] - John Noakes climbing That Mast at the G-Place - how to climb a mast, such an essential skill in the modern RN, and that even John himself could sometimes fail...

As a lifelong civvy I found these invaluable at teaching me all I know about the RN and why joining-up would be ill-advised. I knew in my heart that I was A F*****G COWARD! :cry:

In addition to the mandatory Cruel Sea, etc could I offer "War Games" for CIS; for the submariners we have "Above us the waves" and "We Dive at Dawn" (not on you smutty minded individuals :) )

If we could extract the tapes from the Beeb, then the complete series of "Warship" and "Sailor" from the 1970s, could be used to educate NE into Naval life; on a similar theme the more recent "HMS Brilliant" would be a good training video in how not stage a Sods Opera.

Brilliant did it a lot better in my day...before it became a media darling!

What about " Watership Down" would that count????

"Water It Down" is a much better description of the last 15 or so years I think!

Hornblower - what a series! And full of brilliant tips on how to behave in abject adversity.

Also - the Cruel Sea, Enemy Below, Cockleshell heroes and others in that ilk with underlying messages on general heroism and maintaining a good diet - Snorkers - Good Oh!

Top Gun is not a training aid for the fleet air arm, JAG only deals with the UCMJ not Queens Regs.
