|Did the usual daily sweep of my email inboxes and I noticed that the Navy had sent me a lengthy personalised advert and info on starting my swabbie career.
Surprised by this ( I would rather join the RAAF given the choice of the three services)I looked closely at the accompanying images of smiling happy sailors and it occured to me that the rank insignia was different.
Lightbulb moment...it was the USN and not RAN.
Ok, so I am not sure whether they really want this Aussie to wave the Stars and Stripes, but any chance I have of getting to hang out on a deck amidst SuperBugs, then I am willing to give it a go.
I guess it is a change from those emails where we are asked to help out cash strapped Nigerian princesses in exhile.
Oh well...anchors away
