Warfare Officer Surface to Sub

I plan on entering the Royal Navy as a Warfare Officer.

I have read around on this forum that if you enter as a Warfare Officer (Submariner), you have to spend at least 5 years in the Service before you can transfer to General Surface. However, if you start out as GS, you can "Volunteer" for time on a Submarine.

How does this work? Do I earn my Dolphins? What is the process, and how soon after your Proffesion training can you volunteer?

I feel like earning my Dolphins is a qualification I would be proud to earn, but I want to spend majority of my surface as GS. Atleast, that is my view now.

If you want to be surface fleet W.O. join as one. If you join as a submariner you will receive specialist training which is very expensive so the MOD want a return on their investment. It is reportedly quicker to join to be a submariner but be aware it is a big commitment so make sure you know everything involved before you decide.
