HMS Sultan leave periods


Lantern Swinger
Hi all,

I've been trying to find the dates of the summer leave period at HMS Sultan but have so far been unsuccessful.

I'm know HMS Raleigh get 4 weeks off starting 7th of August (i think) and that other training establishments only get 3 weeks off. But i can't find out whether the 3 weeks leave starts 1 week after Raleigh go on leave, or finish 1 week before Raleigh finish their leave.

I need to know so I can book an appointment.

Any help is greatly appreciated.


These are the set leave dates for Sultan for 2009:-


Fri 3 Apr - Mon 20 Apr Easter Leave

Fri 1 May - Tue 5 May Bank Holiday Weekend

Fri 22 May - Tue 26 May Extended LWE

Fri 7 Aug - Tue 1 Sep Summer Leave

Fri 18 Dec - Mon 4 Jan 10 Christmas Leave

These were taken from the official HMS Sultan webisite

Hope this helps you

Cheers SM. Just what I was looking for.

I knew Sultan had an website but from the RN site all it goes to is a one page site advertising the Sultan Summer Show.

Hey Rookie, I'm off on 31st May. I finish on 31st July. Can't wait now. Actually passed the "sh1tting bricks" phase now and am starting to look forward to it. The RNAC really did put a lot of uncertainty to rest.

Ahh I'm tired of this waiting game as I'm not in till June 21st, the reason I asked was because I am on leave at Raleigh half way through basic and was wondering if I'd be getting more leave when I was at Sultan.

Not 'til crimbo time.

I think I've landed a little bit of luck there.

9 weeks of slog followed by 1 week of phase 2 then 3 weeks off to enjoy the new ripped body in summer. Lol.

We'll have to meet up at the Brass monkey some time. Mate. See if I can't improve on that score.

If it's the same every year, I'd presume the 3rd Friday in December judging by last year's.
I can confirm that Sultans Xmas leave dates for 2010/11 are as follows

Break up 17th Dec 2010
Re-start training 5th January 2011

Hope this helps
