Going to HMS Raleigh august 2014.

Discussion in 'RFA' started by cubworth, Feb 24, 2014.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. 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?

  2. 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
     
  3. Hmm that's what I heard too. But I figured there must be some more young'uns amongst them. Will have to see when I get there haha

    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.

  15. 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.
