    Speaking briefly to my local engagement team at a day with my college, and a officer with the local RNR, they mentioned the RM is in a process of change, as one put it "to be more distinct from the Army" following the end of operations in Afghanistan; including more regular ship deployments.

    My question is in the last year or so, have there been more regular ship deployments on RN warships (other than the ships usually associated with the RM) and what do these deployments normally entail?

    Any information will be gladly appreciated

    How has the GD Mne managed to dodge the big pussers finger of ping?

    Is there any benefits staying as a GD Marine as opposed to going for a SQ straight after the 2 year mark?

    You will probably end up with a sigs ping at 9 months...

    @JWJ

    The ships deployments will be that of a Ships Protection Team, Boarding Teams (Anti Piracy), or whilst on exercise (such as Cougar).

    @Seags98

    The answer to that is dependant on each individuals career aspirations.
