OSQAB – Monday Morning

In civilian speak – the course to teach you how to be a sailor

After being released from CFB Cornwallis, I was sent to CFB Naden, on the beautiful west coast of Canada. I thought I was all good to go, put me on a boat – that was my first error, I said boat to a chief and was given a very passionate description of just how ignorant I really was, they are ships- and I am good to go. Apparently not. First I had to learn exactly what a ship was, how it was designed, how it operated, how it was cleaned (daily and on my hands and knees), how not to cause the ship to self destruct, and, and, and…….

Monday morning, I marched my way to the Seaman ship division and was screamed at for walking across the parade square by the division chief. I still avoid walking across that patch of black top. I finally get myself to where I was supposed to be and get yelled at for being late to class. I tried to explain that I had just been detained by some chief and it was his fault and yadda yadda yadda when all of a sudden that chief walks into our classroom to give his lesson about parade square etiquette. He took one look at me and decided that the adage of if you teach it, you will learn it applied here.

I spent the better part of 20 minutes in front of my classmates explaining exactly where the bounds of the parade square were and exactly how many chiefs had windows facing said boundaries. The other point I had the pleasure to hammer home was when you saluted the Ensign and exactly how to execute said salute.

That was a very long 20 minutes but by the end of it, I was an expert.

And that was Monday Morning, day one of OSQAB
