    You won't find that sort of detail around here - sorry. You'd need to be speaking directly to the RN to get a proper answer. Out of curiosity, why do you want to know that sort of detail at 15?

    Search and Rescue is very likely to be privatised in the coming years.

    Go down to a careers office and ask a few questions. It is what they are there for.
