Does 10 weeks recruit training mean 10 weeks?

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.
