Time Off and Leave at BRNC?
Does anyone know the details of time off during training? At what point in training are you allowed off camp during the week or weekend?
When have you got to be back on camp?
What are the dates for Summer leave this year at?
Summer leave is summer leave there are no longer expeds during it as it is only three weeks. There is the Dartmouth regatta which is good fun and is run using volunteers.I think you need to abandon plans for summer leave till you know whats going on. A lot of the leave periods involve activities, such as acting as DO for the CCF summer camp, or going on an Exped. This far out you do not know what you may get told to do, and the Service will have to come first.
My very strong advice is wait till you get there, find out the lie of the land and then worry about it. I've seen plenty of people over the years make the mistake of thinking that leave means leave. It doesnt, leave at BRNC means a period of time when while you may not be busy training all day, you remain liable to be dicked for all many of shitty duties or broader development, and you would be an extremely foolish individual to turn up expecting uninterrupted summer leave.
Plan on no leave right now, and anything beyond that is a bonus that you take advantage of where possible.
I would think the information you have is Duff. The term is a strict 15 weeks.Thankyou for answering the question @BandGeek.
I will have no dramas with the phys side of things. Nor any of the militarisation side of it I expect as I have a small amount of previous military experience.
One further question if i may. I have it on good authority that the May intake is on the 1st May and the September intake is on the 11th September. This leaves a gap of 19 weeks. Does this mean that the sep intake starts a week after everyone else or the may intake does 16 weeks before having their 3 weeks summer leave.
Or maybe brnc got wind of my holiday plans and decided to extend summer leave to 4 weeks
