Thanks for that, but an ole description would be nice. Please.
Well, there's good news and bad news. The bad news is that Neil will be taking over both branches, and some of you will lose your jobs. Those of you who are kept on will have to relocate to Swindon, if you wanna stay. I know, gutting. On a more positive note, the good news is, I've been promoted, so... every cloud. You're still thinking about the bad news aren't you?
4 RCN officers did an exchange with the NS in 2016
Any accounts available from the INS's regarding their own tour in the RCN?
Not sure if it is a 2 way thing
There was an article by an NS officer who did the RCN CD Cse in An Cosaintoir a while back, think I remember hearing about some other Cse as well
The article refers to it being an officer exchange programme.
From the Canadian side:
http://www.navy-marine.forces.gc.ca/...ogram/hwriv1ryA few years back, we perceived that a period of training and experiential shortfall might develop as the Halifax Class entered a six-year modernization program. The modernization followed close on the heels of recruiting success that was injecting hundreds of junior personnel into the navy’s schoolhouses and fleet. The last thing desired was to deliver modernized frigates but lacking the deeply experienced crews necessary to operate the technology to full effect. Initiatives had to be undertaken to provide sailors access to a healthy learning environment despite the reduction of available hulls aboard which to train them.
One of the methods implemented to address the challenge is called the Regulus Program.
They get time at sea in an operational environment and in return the NS gets access to Canada's training facilities etc:
