I rung up the AFCO today as i am wanting to join the Navy after a long time of on and off thinking about whether or not it would be right for me. Anyway my option was Medical Assistant General Service or Submariner which ever seemed most needed and they said there was a 20 month waiting list for both! Steward Submariner was 6 months the very least. I mean are all the forces like that at the moment and is there nothing else you can do but wait it out for 20 months? Turbo.
