What sort of things are in a task book?

#1
Is a task book simply a set of exercises and questions or is it something else? Also, if someone could post an example of what's in one (preferably for an MA) that would be super (assuming it's not classified).

Walk before you can run... worry about joining up, Passing Out/In/Whatever, before you start worrying about Task Book Training! :roll:

I think you'll find the information in Creddly's definitive guide: An Idiot's Guide to the Royal Navy, now in it's 5th edition and available in paperbeck. See pages 781-789. ;)

Your deployment task book will have some of the following tasks in it, although some are branch specific.

Shag a lady of the night.
Shag a ladyboy (Stokers and RM only)
Shag a Wren (Killicks task book only)
Get trooped
Fight a local
Fight another member of the ship's company
Fight another member of another ship's company
Pass out in the mess square and get abused
Pass out in someone else's mess square and get even more abused
8 piece someone in a game of uckers
Uptable during a game of uckers
Swamp
Grandslam (No requirement to swamp if this is completed first)
Eat some gash scran in a foreign country (an example of this is hard boiled eggs complete with chicken foetus)
Get a tat

Can anyone think of any more?

Wait till nearly everyone is asleep and pipe "Hands to night flying stations!" Push the big ones off the sharp end and then when they are all asleep bounce them back on the blunt end. Finally go down to the galley in crabby flight deck gear and demand the duty chef gives you night flying suppers.
Then the best bit; beat them all at deck hockey and volley-ball :D

Ooh I forgot one:

Curl one down in a random compartment onboard.
As an OM part our deployment task book was to beat one off in every WE Compartment through the duration of the deployment whilst conducting rounds (1 or more per round until all compartments are completed)

So true.

I found the bearing head on a 42 to be the most rewarding.

Indeed, I was sorely unimpressed with the distinct lack of porn you left for the handover though. :p

I do not call a couple of crusty copies of Readers Wives, a German 50 plus magazine and some vintage copies of Mayfair a massive stockpile.

You've changed Thommo, you've changed. :lol:
