Does 10 weeks recruit training mean 10 weeks?

#1
I know that you do 10 weeks basic at Raleigh, but what I want to know is, does that actually mean 10 weeks. For example, I am aware that there are summer, easter and christmas holidays. But what about bank holidays, etc? And on top of that, how far can you be backtrooped, or is there a limit on it?

Please be gentle with me... :( (not in that way)

I'll be gentle. Remove this ridiculous post now before the proper bullies come along. Unless you are a chick, in which case PM me. I'm a diver!

Ten weeks surprisingly doesn't mean that. It's actually 68 days, regardless of leave or bank holidays

If bank holidays are in term time, tough titty and you don't get backtrooped, that's an army term which is also used when pongo's are enjoying bum fun in the trenches..gen dit.

In the Senior Service one gets back classed dontcha know.

10 weeks isn't just a random duration they made up, there's set phases in which you must complete to pass out of Raleigh that accumulate to 10 weeks.

Not sure why I'm even answering this, but I can tell you I'm typing my reply in an exasperated manner...

In the wonderful world of Initial Naval Training personnel are now Training Extended.
Is there a limit on that?
Indeed there is, otherwise the elastic will snap.

A little tip in life - Start a military career with the intention of achieving success in all you do from the outset.

For those that wish to explore boundaries by aiming for the maximum permitted number of failed attempts, the training team will be only too pleased to advise the consequences of subsequent failures.
