I'd just polished my crystal ball and Presto!!! The answer appears. AET. Your initial post would have been a good place to mention this gem!!!!

AET, so it's either Culdrose or Yeovilton for you!

I find it difficult as I started out life as a baby JNAM. That's baby AET in old money!!!!
I went to careers office at 15 saying I wanted to join as a NAM.
Talked me out of it, 'Do you want to push helicopters around a flight deck all day' he says. Next thing I know, I'm joining up as a tiff based on my non-existent GCE's

It was common in the 60's and 70's.. Even after I joined, we NAM's were sent to Culdrose for firefighting. NAM's were always confused with Naval Airmen, (trained at Culdrose). Which are Aircraft Handlers NA's. They are the folk who get to push aircraft around as well as fight fires and air traffic control.

Mind you, it was to my advantage. Dad don't want me to join. (All 5 foot 3 of him!! - Big 6 foot 6 plus of bootie towers over my dad and says sign here!!!!! Five months later I walked through the gates of Ganges!! Cheers Royal!
