Don't bother taking any civvy clothes. You won't get a chance to wear them anyway. You will be in uniform pretty much from the beginning to passing out. You'll wear your smart clothes to your PO's Dinner.

I take it you mean trousers unless you're American? If your not a septic, make sure your dung hampers are clean because you'll certainly stand out from the crowd at Plymouth station ;)

You don't get a day off bud, you get shore leave in week 9 but you'll be in your 3's.
Raleigh is full-on, you get used to it though.

Don't take any civvy clothes. I believe you get shore leave end of week 7 and week 9 but you go to Plymouth in uniform - you can buy new clothes for your PO dinner!

No shore leave in week 7 I'm afraid, that's kit muster and dartmoor week. Which certainly come with their own charms if you smash both. Rest of what you said is spot on though.

I'm sure my senior class had 2 shore leaves! Must be wrong.
