*Disclaimer for the benefit of Hig: what I am about to ask I haven't found a direct reply for as yet, going to my AFCO is not always convenient and going in there I am just as likely to find a Crab or Pongo and they don't deal with occifers in theree anyway. Now, I will probably get some abuse for this but here goes anyway. I am currently applying for WAFU, but understand that the FATs are bloody hard and there's a fairly good chance of not getting the result I desire. With that in mind I have been thinking of what I could do if that does happen, and have decided that I would like to go as a Warfare Officer, but undecided whether I would prefer above or below the waves. Are there any current or former Warfare Officers from the Submarine Service and those on ships who would care to give me no BS advice and a taste for what each has to offer and is like please? Also anything from sailors or submariners from other departments would be welcome, so I canget some idea of what each environment is like, without the obvious skewing you get on the recruitment vids! And before anyone mentions any of these, I'm only 5'8" so not prone to smacking my head off of low ceilings, am not chlaustrophobic (or however the hell you spell it!), do not get motion sickness and spent 10 years at boarding school, so the idea of spending large amounts of time in a confined space with lots of other guys doesn't bother me - why else would I be applying for the Navy?!
