ONLY take whats on the list. They issue you with trainsers and even socks. Do not get caught with extra kit though, they will eat you alive
 
My daughter is in week 2 and seems to be ok,2 areas she seems to find hard at the moment is the ropes climbing and the sit-ups.I told her to carry on trying her hardest and it will come by week 10,wondering is this common with the young female recruits?

It's all about effort. As long as the PTI's see that she is giving it her all she'll be fine. There might be some 'encouragement' but other than that it'll be fine.

From what I saw it was common. Don't worry it's an effort game not how many rope climbs you can do. As long as they can see she's putting effort in then she'll be fine!

I always hated those old salts who were full of "in my day" stories but by god they have it easy nowadays! Raliegh probably turns out more professional, better qualified ratings but where what dits will they tell their kids when they are silly old b*ggers like me?

It all went wrong when they closed Fisgard...
 
You so full of it one your not a midshipman and also while I was at Raleigh your class told me how lazy and bad at IMF you were most of this is lies and I wouldnt take your word for any of it

WreckerL is a retired Chief Tiff SM and would spit on you for calling him a Midi.

If that was aimed at me Stirl, the child is seriously deluded as I never joined up at Raleigh, so my class at Ganges 42 years ago told him I was lazy..that's some going :D

Loved to have had him on a boat though, if he called me that..those sewage tank float alarms don't check themselves you know ;)

Then (if we were docked down) could I borrow him to clean out the transducer space? It sent my baby Tiff loopy as it was full of wiggly smelly things. And it was dark!

His post was directly below yours , he has since deleted it , it pays to use the quote function.
Not boat savvy but I like your/SB dits for dealing with gobby twats.
 
Really great report. Hoping to join as an AET in May, it is very useful to see a realistic break down of your experience. I imagine that the whole process has remained mostly unchanged for a long time, and presumably won't be altered too much in the future. Thanks for the advice!

Week one is one of the toughest as you are bombarded with information and have to adjust to a completely different way of life. Tell him to hang on in there as it does get better with time but not immediately.

Is it true there is WiFi available in Raleigh now? When I was leaving phase 1 in 2013 there were new industrial washing machines and driers fitted so it was easier for the next intake as it was murder fighting over sinks and driers being so overloaded they broke. So maybe it's easier even now compared to 2013 haha
