I am joining as a trainee deck rating and received my provisional offer last week. I am due to go to hms Raleigh on the 31st August and was wondering if there was anyone else on here joining then? :)

Also so I am only 20 is that really young for someone in the rfa?

From what I can gather, 20 is young for RFA. I'm 26. Most people who I've come across in these forums are 30+.

RFA Comms Rating. Start date 20/04/2014

You will have nothing to do with the RFA lads who started this thread in the RFA section of the forum. There is a separate RN Raleigh entry thread.

As someone who has gone through the whole waiting period (I got my offer for April Start in October) - Your nerves will soon subside. You've got a long 6 months ahead of you.

Thanks :) sure I'll be raring to go when it comes around! Just issues with my vaccinations are making it seem a lot more hectic than it really is I suppose.
