|Synopsis: .The Royal Navy Instructor Officers’
Association (RNIOA), through its educational website
(www.rnioa.org.uk), commemorates the experiences and history of
those who served in the Royal Navy's Instructor Officer ('Schoolie')
Specialisation, which had roots going back to 1702 and was finally
disbanded in 1996. Authored,
compiled and edited by former Schoolies, this book begins by
providing a brief historical overview of the Instructor and
Schoolmaster branches that were unified in 1946.
It then illustrates the wide spectrum of work carried out by
Schoolies as educators and within sub-specialisations such as
meteorology, oceanography, training technology, engineering and
computer science. This is achieved by a representative sample of
short autobiographical stories and articles compiled by former
Schoolies and associates of the RNIOA, including those from the
Royal Australian Navy (RAN) and the Royal New Zealand Navy (RNZN).
