    MOD: I said it was restricted
    The TSU was larger before the last evisceration (sorry, re-org) also and included Marine Engineer Officer and Electrical Engineer Officer appointments.

    Sorry copy I have is old and no sec rating, given it on a training night a number years ago.

    Does anyone know if you can go straight into 2nd line technical support unit from PDF and hold your rank.
    If yes it makes real sense to open the technical support unit up more and allow retiring navy to join.
    i know Officers cant, we had a guy retiring and wanting to come into the ar unit but reps tried to block it due to up coming promotions. GOC was a bit surprised that they raised it with him in that manner.
    all ranks afaik can (subject to there being a vacancy at the rank)

    In very short, I think NSR should really only be made up of professional maritime qualified lads, where their civilian training can be directly used by the DF. In a way like doctors, dentists, nurses, CIS can be. Can't see why you need anything else. Then those new boats that are costing a lot of tax payers money would be professionally crewed and operated. In part, that would really support some of the points already raised in the topic of this thread. While any of us can get an ISA (sailing school) qual and very few if any ever fail those exams, if you are marine trained and qualified, you can directly assist the DF, diving groups, engineers boats and the navy. So not really just about the army is it. Its more holistic than just army.

    Struggling to see the relevance your query has to the topic of the post to be honest. What is it about the Army that they want to make everything about them?

    My bad, great to see, the mistake then was not crediting him with his unit. Hence my little rant.
    Ah fair enough. He's part of the NSR Technical Support Unit. I'm not sure if he's linked to another unit too.

    Former president of the Institute of Master mariners too, unless I'm mistaken. And to think the Air Defence Regt were hiding him away for years.
