Christmas

#1
Hi i am off to raleigh in the next few weeks which means if all things go well i shall be passing out at the beginning of december. Will i be sent straight off to the next phase of my training? Does the training continue all the way through xmas? What if any time with the family will i get?
Any comments would be appreciated

If you are still in phase two training, unless the security state increases, you can be fairly sure you will be home for Christmas & New Year. After training, you may be required to be duty over the Christmas or New Year period however you can usually get one or other off unless you are deployed overseas.

I passed out of Raliegh early Dec (85) we then went on Christmas leave and had to come back for new year, barrack guard. We were day watch so could get out new year. However had to back on board for 23:59. Cheif of the watch told us, "if we had asked he would have let us stay out longer, but as your back on board, get to bed"

Welcome to the Navy.

Never worked a Christmas in 23 years but did work one more new year.

As Ninja stated bud. If you are in Basic, Part two or part three training, you will not be involved in any duties over the xmas and new year period, unless the security state is increased.

So basically, don't worry, you will be able to enjoy the festive period and spin dits on how great a matelot you have become. ;-)

You may get a weekend off inbetween phase one & two training, but not more.

There is very rarely a hold-over inbetween phase one & two unless you are back-classed for failing an element of phase one training & have to wait for the next class of recruits in your branch/specialisation to start phase two training.

Yes, you still get 'paided' even when on leave or in between drafts. :)

The only time you do not get paid is if you spend some time in the detention centre at Colchester for being a naughty boy or girl.
