Now that the harriers and aircraft carriers are to be scrapped by HMG what is to happen to all Fleet Air Arm personnel?

Will some officers & ratings be made redundant, or transfered into other branches of the RN RAF or the Army Air Corps?

More likely to the dole queue. The Iindian and Chinese navies are growing exponentially their skills could be needed there.

'From what I have heard a large chunck of JFH will be shared amongst VL & CU.

Some going to Sultan, and a handfull transfering to specialist STC duties.'

Apoligies for my ignorance having not served in the FAA, but what is VL & CU or STC duties stand for?

They will be woken from their usual slumbers and informed that the world has moved on. As a 'jesture' (intentional) of goodwill they will be allowed to take their teddies and muster at the local job centre

They are about to be awakened discovering just how harsh the real world is.

'VL = Yeovilton CU = Culdrose STC = STC Branch, details and guidance'

Many thanks JFH. I wonder how many FAA personnel many could end up in Afganistan. I was recently informed that instead of cuts to all branches of the the armed forces by HMG, many RAF & RN personnel could be formed into a joint regiment to serve in Afganistan to 2015. Anyone else heard this, or is it just another mess deck buzz?

No reason why it shouldn't happen, it has before, an excellent way to fill the front line gaps!
