Recent decommissioned ships

With the weekend passed so to Success and Newcastle have crossed the bar. with that may be the crew less Anzac frigate can be crewed now. Melbourne will go soon as well, surely there is personal available to form a crew and get a tax payer funded unit back to sea.

Only if they're FFH trained. There's also the issue of shore respite after a sea posting.

Should be plenty of FFH trained crew available. Five Anzacs at Henderson currently, three up on the hard at BAE, one in the floating Drydock, and one alongside. I know that the two latter are probably fully manned, but how on Earth are we hoping to crew Twelve SSK's in the future. Plenty of investment in platforms, but not in Personnel it seems?
