Costs and Life in the Navy


I am thinking of joining the RN as a weapons engineer through the accelerated apprenticeship scheme and I have a few questions. First of all during training and after training what are the costs and deductions, apart from tax and national insurance. Also how often do you stop off at ports and what type of places. Finally how much holiday do you get, including leave. Thanks.

Tax (funnily enough) depends on your salary.
Port visits will depend on your ship and what its program is
Leave is 38 days per year (inclusive of bank hols) and then you are awarded an extra days leave for every month you are on a sea going vessel


that's only tax free in the Merchant Navy if ur out of Uk so many days a year. That could in the region 180 days a year..but that figure is a guess
