smart, they're to wear on your 'PO's dinner' evening ashore at the Carbeile Inn (good curry, bad roast beef) which is done in civvies, but you won't get away with a pair of Etnies.

How about a pair of Converse? :thumright:

No. Seriously, though.

Smart as in something this smart:


Or a tad less formal?

Has anyone actually found an electric razor that gives a good shave? I've owned a few, and they're useful if you are in a hurry, but I always feel like I still need a proper shave after using one.

That's smart enough, there's not many ways you can go smarter than that, but any less would not be good enough.

Nope, I've tried pretty much every brand too (lazy bastard me). I'm pretty convinced that an electric razor will never be as good a shave as a gilette and shaving foam.

Just reading this and I just thought of something. If your training coincides with a leave period do you leave your kit that you've taken at Raleigh for the duration of leave?

If not, do you take your issued kit as well?

I know it's a daft-ish question but fcuk it :thumright:

on leave u take ur civvies back (u leave ur iron and stuff). "officially" u cannot take your uniform home. most take some home for a good wash.

Ok, thanks for the answer. Just going through a massive deep clean of my room and wanted to know whether I could chuck some old holdalls out.

Ok then, but I have an 80L rucksack I tend to use.

Anyway, how're you enjoying the navy life, B2B? Any tips for Raleigh?

having just passed out and done 2 weeks at collingwood i'd say take an a4 folding board a plastic one if you can get hold of one! only take one yellow dusting cloth for the bottom of your locker use a silvet cloth for polisying front of your shoes! dont use parade gloss its crap! get a good iron! not a cheap one, alot better for making the shirts as flat as you can get them when folded a4

Im joining Raleigh at the beginning of next week and have a query about the yellow dusters!!!

It says 'good quality' yellow dusters and in the shops where I live the only ones I've found are the ones in packs of 5 or 10 for about 2.00£!!! Wondered if these were good enough!?

I then went too a quality footwear shop and brought 2 shoe dusters from them - they arent yeloow though!!! Will these be ok!?

I know this is a mongish question but seriously, I don't want to be the cnut turning up with browish dusters instead of yellow on my 1st day!!
