I get that (and neither is the RAF) - but those 1*s will be frustrated when the very few 2* loggie posts come up and they have to compete with not just the Army and RAF but also the RM (!) and CS, and.....outsiders...and they'll then leave.Yup - but the RN isn't big enough to sustain three different branches.
Interestingly though, we've a fairly good strike rate of Loggies at 1*, across all 3 "streams".
Hence, QMG has only been a logistician once (Jaquesy and Kevin don't count as they were REME and RE respectively), that was Paul Travers (RCT) back in the early 80s and such a departure the shock killed him.
I'm assuming that now that DG Land is an ex-RAF engineer that we can look forward to a Trog becoming DG Air?
Somehow I doubt it but until these utterly false barriers are smashed on the basis of merit then we'll be condemned to sub-optimal support solutions.
