Yes Chris, an excellent build.......[just digressing, the ratio of Officers to Enlisted Sailors appears a little heavily weighted]


7 Officers  %)  observing or supervising 6 Enlisted Sailors??

Well.....of course your fair call Rob.....however I did not state 'Commissioned'  Officers...certainly a different ratio to any RAS or Person transfer I have seen with our RAN
