    1 August - 25 August I think. They usually go back the week before Raleigh...

    Anyone know summer leave dates for Nelson.
    Are they likely to be the same as above? Thanks
  5. Unless things have changed drastically, Collingwood is a training establishment, and as such the trainees all get a fixed leave period, and Collingwood more or less closes for this period (stand fast the duty watches) Nelson on the other hand is not, and summer leave is taken according to duties, as the base will still be required to be manned.

    I am sure that someone who is not an old fart and been out of the mob for the better part of 20 years will be along shorty to tell you I am typing bollocks, but that's the way it used to be
  6. And still is, Nelson isn't a training establishment although I did do my DIT course there (and not how to spin them before someone cuts in :) )

  7. That explains quite a lot then Wrecker =) But I am sure you can find a GS type rating who will give a weather dodger like you a crash course in spinning a dit
  8. I have plenty of dits mik, I just can't spin them to skimmers, if you get my drift ;)
