Is this true… That if you did this before 1991 they gave you and RFPNW with your BST? I know old people who said they were given it when they got there BST? If so this is SUCKS, MSC only AB’s and OS’s steer and do watches, and I hold and AB but had to take a stewards position cause that’s all that was opened… well I will have to do 180 days of 4 hours watches unpaid on my own time just to get my RFPNW. Thats a lot of boring work considering I am doing 12 hour days anyways. So if I want to stand watches for FREE it will be a 16 hour day!!! I know I am being a baby and crying but it pisses me off that I have to work fairly hard for what people got for free back in the day!!!
