Just a few questions to ask you guys if that's ok. I wanted to know how much sea time you are likely to get as a WE officer? I imagine you get more sea time than say if you were an information systems officer? Another thing I have always wondered is can you command a ship if you are a weapons engineer officer? I'm sure I heard that you have to be a warfare officer to get command of a ship. And if you cannot get command of a ship what role do you take on after you have gone as far as you can on ships? Thanks for any advice you give in advance. ----EDIT----- Sorry guys I'm a clutz and there was something I forgot that I wanted to ask. I mentioned on another thread that I have the intention of applying for sponsorship through university to get a good engineering degree. I live in Edinburgh and hope to go to Edinburgh university. I remember finding a list of universities that the RN will sponsor you in and Edinburgh wasn't on it. Does this mean I won't be able to get sponsorship unless I move to Aberdeen or Dundee uni's which are mentioned on the list? Or would it be possible to attend Edinburgh uni and attend an RNR unit instead of a University squadron?
