    No, no... Bloggins was always a Gunner's Mate... Leading Seaman Gunner's Mate Bloggins. :)

    Walts, posers & wannabes (merged)

    The other upside is that sailors do not run the risk of falling afoul of 3 PPCLI in the Cartoon Club, either :)

    Two Canadian warships collide during exercise manoeuvres en route to Hawaii

    Not surprising; PRO didn't have much that a bit of Bondo and paint couldn't fix :)

    Which is the harder trade?

    Huh. Okay, I'll fix that. Standby to standby :) Right, give it a go now.

    What book are you reading now?

    Two Canadian warships collide during exercise manoeuvres en route to Hawaii

    Not really - #2 Solar intake plenum and exhaust trunking,  yes. #3 is on the stbd side of the hanger. None of the main prop GTs have air intake through there. Not an insurmountable problem. Besides, according to a winger, #2 was on load at the time and held it just fine, though they did xfer to...

    Help me pick my MOS

    Your recruiting center. Seriously, the only other way I (as a non-recruiter) could try putting a list together would be by sifting through the APS openings and trade intake on the DMC website, and I have too much to do in the day as it is.

    CF Appreciation Program

    What CF appreciation website? Duh... this is what I get for surfing when I've got the plague. All my brains are gone.

    Which is the harder trade?

    PM me if you like; I'm an ETECH and currently an instructor at Fleet School in Esquimalt. Summary edition - both trades require smart people who are willing to dig in and get the job done.

    Is it normal to bring a few family members when being sworn in?

    Quite normal and encouraged. I remember asking if my Dad (an LCol at the time) could administer the oath and the RC had no problem with that at all.

    Two Canadian warships collide during exercise manoeuvres en route to Hawaii

    Some of the comments are priceless, too. The number of self-appointed experts is truly impressive.

    Trade I applied for is now closed, what to do now?

    No you don't. First, there's no such thing as an 'element transfer'; the closest there is is selection of DEU in purple trades (e.g., log, medical, admin, etc.). Not being in a purple trade I can't speak with authority to how often you can change DEU, but it doesn't matter, because regardless of...

    Wrist Watch Recommendations - Merged Thread

    If you're concerned with looking 'cool' while in basic, your priorities are seriously screwed up. My $20 POS has served me well on several ships, teaching in Saint-Jean and two goes at CFFSE. You're not here to look pretty or cool; you're here to do the job.
