    I actually don't know what happens if a former PDF joins the NSR so I can't comment. Obviously the common sense approach would be for them to retain their branch.

    I can confirm that anyone I've...

    NSR recruits are advanced to OS after two weeks recruit training and a number of weekends - similar to the AR. The training for the most part wouldn't look a whole lot different to the AR with...

    Spot on with the above but this is where the disconnect is.

    Indeed it does and they are a great asset.

    The gaining of such qualifications for new NSR officers without a maritime background or prior PDF service isn't realistic and does not align with their...

    NSR officers at sea

    I believe I have mentioned this in another thread where there was a similar comment. Four/six months on ship would be great in theory but your analysis isn't reflecting the fact that these new...

    I can't speak for units other than my own but you can only put someone on a course if they are available, willing and able. The fact the course was all male may be more a reflection of the current...
