HMS Raleigh summer break and passing out dates

#1
My son has just gone to Raleigh on 23 July 2017. I'm now aware that they have summer break but I'm not sure if this is 3 or 4 weeks. Also it obviously has a knock on effect as to when his (hopefully!) passing out parade will be. Any help on dates/timings would be gratefully received as I had already booked a long haul flight before knowing they had a break and had worked out his passing out date - all now gone to pot and flights will need changing/cancelling. Thanks in advance!

Leave starts 05 Aug (Sat) for phase 1 recruits. They get bussed to the train station early that day to travel home (unless he's local, then it is possible to leave on the Friday).

Raleigh has 4 weeks summer leave because we work Bank Holidays, so he'll be back on Sun 03 Sep. Add 4 weeks to when you thought he was passing out, which by my calculations means he should pass out on 27 Oct.

I don't wish to sound negative, but a lot of things can happen at any point in training that result in recruits being 'training extended' (back-classed), so if you're booking flights then I would suggest you pay for fully flexible tickets or have good insurance.
