Prince William to serve in RAF as SAR pilot

#2
Oh, how nice - The Crabs.



Well in fairness to him, flying the bright yellow PR machines is doing something useful. Cant ever see him being allowed anywhere hot and sandy. So why not.

Just imagine the PR coup when 'he' rescues a baby from a roof top in Tewksbury.

Good luck to him.

He has taken the decision to do the nearest thing to Ops he will ever be allowed to(rather than become a full time Royal) and this deserves some credit.

However, the RAF? FFS... :wink:
 
#5
Fair play to him. It's the nearest he can get to doing an Op tour, and it'll free up another pilot to go fly green choppers in hotter sandier places.

Wish I was a Prince. If I rock up and tell everyone I´d been to Sandhurst, became a Cornet in the HCR, then decided to be a Matelot, then decided RAF SAR was my bag.....

Well, you´d be chased by ever Waltfinder General going!!!

And yes... I am insanely jealous.

Quite obviously he has had a look at the rest of the forces and decided to join the superior one!
Well he is supposed to be more cerebral than his brother, and not much point joining the Navy nowadays. Logical choice really.

Offhand, hopefully someone has thought of that :(
It will be the first SAR Helicopter with 4 extra 'winchmen' all moustachio'd called Vince, Ginge etc with a penchant for H&K over Walther........
Brazillian mountain climbers beware.... :?

Heh Heh, can just see it now. Bright yellow SAR chopper comes into the hover, closely followed by the merlin with said moustachio'd, and in the distance a stand off Apache....just in case.

Excellent choice, Your Highness, Your Highness.

Step this way please ...
Suits, flying, permanent wear - 2
Badges, Velcro - 26 assorted
Socks, white - 4 pairs
Some other stuff - 3 bags

Good luck on the course: it ain't going to be easy.
Don't do a "Wessex" on us, please! :wink:

But the Wessex was a very good helicopter.....
... whereas ... :wink:


Anyway, it's our turn, so there! :lol:

"One is pleased for the opportunity. It makes a change from one being 10 Colonels-in-Chief and a spare Field Marshal [note there's only one "L" there :wink: ]. Or yet another occasional Admiral responsible for a half-tugboat on alternate Thursdays."
