Speak to your AFCO. If you are in training over Christmas, world politics & environmental disasters aside, you'll be home on Christmas leave.

Christmas at Raleigh is a wonderful time. Christmas dinner with beer, carol service with mince pies and mulled wine and if you're lucky the Bish will slip a little rum into your tea (I hear this happens in the Catholic church the rest of the year too.)

As you are more than likely joining on the 26th October you will do 8 weeks, then 2 weeks leave, then return to complete the final 2 weeks. Then straight on to the college of knowledge - HMS Collingwood.

Am I right in thinking that your family perhaps don't live in the UK and that this is why you are concerned about having time to get back to see them at Christmas?

no, I live in the uk with my family, I am just wondering about what would happen during christmas time in basic training, and if I would get christmas leave, as this would be a nice thing becuase I wouldn't like to be away from home at christmas. Although if there is no christmas leave then it does not bother me so much that I won't go in haha, it's just an enquiry.
