Why would i need good eyesight for the Submarine Service?

Sherminator, having done the job of a Submarine Loggie if your eyesight is worse than -3 in each eye you will be fack all use as a submarine pusser as that is about the limit to which the periscope will easily adjust. And even if your eyesight is marginally better than that you will still have issues at dusk and night.

As a submarine pusser you will work F'in hard. You will be on watch in the control room as much as the Dabbers, and at the same time you will have responsibility for all the food on board - which can be fun!, and most importantly the whole logistics function - which means blazing rows with the MEO, the XO and the WEO on a regualr basis. Its a job with lots of responsibility and is quite cerebral. some people like it, some hate it. If you do go for it, just take solace from the fact the pussers have the highest average AIB score after bootie officers. Dabbers are a lot lower down the food chain!

If you want to be an officer and don't have an engineering degree then pusser is mostprobably your best option. You will have a much greater choice of postings - none of that being at sea your whole life crap - which if you ask most warfare officers is crap. Also there are more foriegn postings and more joint postings as a pusser and if you really want to you can get your green lid etc..... However you will not go to sea as much.

You will also end up shining your arse more than a dabber.

The supply Officer on Swiftsure (Princess Leah) during the eighties wore 'specs but then he never got to be a bridge watchkeeping officer. I've known one or two captains who wore 'specs as well.
