  1. Hey there all,im a newbie.Anyone on intake this Sunday 23rd Sept 07. Going to HMS Raleigh for training new 9 weeks of basic.Im going in as a Warfare Specialist, Submariner, Sonar/Tactical. Would be great to get to know you.Traveling from Coventry.Wish me luck and will keep you all posted. Steve.
  2. Hello and Welcome Steve G, Not long now for you to go then, Good luck.
  3. Does anyone know what they have russled up to fill a ninth week with? At my pre-joining brief was told it was 8 weeks when I queried it was told "maybe", but they knew northing about it oter some rumour from people who had recently completed the course, good to see the communications are up to normal standards!

    And by the way I will be at Raleigh the week after you Steve.
  4. Hey Phil,all I know about the new 9 weeks basic is that they have extended it and that the first week is intended on admin,medicals,fitness assessments and to settle in mate.If I find out will more will let you know. Will keep an eye out for you. Good Luck and enjoy it.Im nervous but I cant wait 2 start now.
  5. Thanks Lost_Soul for your message mate,Good Luck to you on the 28th bud. Steve.
  6. Hi and welcome to RR.

    Good luck with your basic training xx

    Just a little advice; it would be a good idea to possibly not mention your full name on a website like this. It's called PERSEC, basically, keepin gyour private info, private for security reasons xx
  7. Good luck Steve, by f**k we need a few of you lot to get through training and help out the boys on the boats. Dont get too p**sed off with have wet hands from scrubbing out, it gets better with time! :thumright:
