The interesting thing is every job has a menial or mundane aspect. Be it ET(ME)s cleaning grease filters on sewage treatment systems, Comms Techs cleaning toilets, ET(WE)s painting equipment in the freezing cold after climbing up the mainmast at sea, or a Warfare Specialist carrying out gangway watches in the pissing rain at 2 am whilst everyone else is returning from a run ashore in Madeira or an Officer Under Training working her stint in the junior rates dinning hall potwash.

The odd thing is Warfare Specialists are probably one of the larger branches and therefore capable of moaning the loudest when it suits them.

They are no worse off than any other branch, they just like to think they are. @Chicogiz in your personal experience, as a Warfare Specialist of repute, how many hours a week, on average, does a WS spend painting whilst serving on a seagoing warship over the course of a year?

Hell, as a recruiter I even had to make my own cup of tea and work on a Sunday. Once. And here I am at stupid o'clock answering recruiting queries....

Bit like having a CMEM’s uniform in your profile pic as a WO1 Career Advisor?

Yep, I need to update that avatar piccy.

As a Careers Adviser, one continues to wear one's source branch badges, but yep, as an RN WO, one no longer wears branch badges on the lapels, just the propellor tattoos on the arse cheeks. It's probably in a BR. Somewhere.
