It's difficult to speak without all the information. But normally they will be given more than one attempt at a kit muster. Some of the young darlings are not ready to leave the family home and look after themselves and Raleigh will prove this. We do not train people out of the Navy, we try to help them get through each part of the training. However, sometimes we have to let them go for a while, they will normally be allowed to retry Raleigh after a period of time.
Anyway hopefully it won't come to that if he knuckles down and gets it cracked next time
Calm down - I get the drift that you have served but seem to have forgotten all about the banter.
At his age he will probably have waited a fair time for his place at RALEIGH and I'm sure the 'Team Spirit' will have his classmates Raleighing round (sorry - Couldn't resist that pun...) to sort his kit out next time.
As SM says, he'll get every encouragement from the staff, too.
It's always tough when the fledgling leaves the nest and seems to flounder at the first spread of the wings but I don't think it'll be long before you are at his passing out, glowing with pride.
Time enough to worry is when he is away at sea and his pregnant girl friend(s) turn up at your doorstep with parents in tow. :wink:
Edited - Put the above in the context for his next attempt, I've only just hoisted in that he was Discharged.
Nuff said. He got the boot because he had several attempts and still didn't pull his finger out. If he really wanted to do something with his life he would have made the effort and not failed. And you come on here telling us we have the audacity to judge? Excuuuuuse me!
