HMS Raleigh Summer Leave 2016?

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I'm guessing the dates for summer leave next year are probably not yet sorted but does anyone have a vague idea?

    I go to Raleigh on 10th July so I know I will get summer leave.
    Was planning on booking a little holiday but I don't know exactly when leave will be?

  4. Are these dates confirmed?:)
  5. Holiday during basic training!!!!!

    I'd be wrapping myself up in cotton wool :(
  6. Start my basic training in April and wanting to book a holiday? Are these the confirmed closure dates of Raleigh?

    why not focus on getting past basic, then worry about leave?

    the rn is great at messing peoples plans up at no notice. i would suggest this year take a miss from hols planning till you know how things look.

  8. My sights are thoroughly on that, I just thought that Raleigh closed for a while in summer and thought I'd benefit from that. I'm just needing confirmed closure dates?
  9. Yes, go on leave 5th Aug, back to the grind 5th Sept.

    Unless you're required to assist in flood work/strike coverage/ any other domestic crisis.
  10. This is 100% confirmed?
  11. FFS ring Raleigh main gate if you don't believe what two people have told you!!!

    you are being offered advice here - listen in.

    dont book a holiday - all sorts of things can go wrong. wait till you are out of raleigh and into a unit where it is more doable.

    listen to advice offered!
  14. Just to clarify- are those dates confirmed???

    You need to understand that this is not set in stone, if any emergencies crop up ie flooding, Ambulance or Fire Brigade strikes leave could be cancelled at very short notice, this will apply throughout your service.

    right up to the point something goes wrong.
  17. How many times do you have to say the same thing before it eventually sticks???

    No wonder there's so many being DUDT'd these days!!
  18. So what you're saying is these dates are layed down?
