    The other forces that have officers flying UAVs did so in order to provide jobs for the boys & to allow said officers to maintain pilot status. There's no other reason for it.

    From Facebook:
    Over the passed 12 months S/Lt Shane Mulcahy under went the Mine Clearance Diver Course with the Royal Canadian Navy at the Fleet Diving Unit Pacific, in Canada. This course was hugely demanding both physically and mentally on all students.

    During this course S/Lt Mulcahy learned various methods for 'making safe' different types of mines, including deploying from a helicopter to approach a mine floating at the surface. He did Surface Supplied diving, which involved breathing mixed gas fed through a hose from the surface down to the diver at depths of up to 100 meters. This was a very technical phase on the course and required teamwork and trust amongst the students. During this training the students conducted underwater welding, cutting, use of hydraulic tools, and ended with a salvage project, recovering a sunken 40 foot fishing vessel.

    S/Lt Mulcahy was presented with the top student award by the Deputy Commander Canadian Fleet Pacific, Captain Bradley Peats. The Naval Service congratulate S/Lt Mulcahy on his superb performance on this course and look forward to his return to the Naval Service Diving Section.

    Have they?

    Was the relationship with the Canadian Navy born out of the Chicoutimi incident, or has it been going on longer?

    Hi there
    Somebody find that guy in the photograph, using the compass, a helmet that fits. It's less useful than a chocolate teapot as it is.

    What's a Navy Curl?

    Great to see our Navy sharing their knowledge and experience with others, and great to see lads heading to foreign Navies to do courses-
