Holidays during phase 2

Hi everyone,

First post so please be kind. I’m due to join Raleigh in January and start my phase two in April (logistics branch)

Anyway, what are the chances of getting holidays/ time off during phase 2? I have a close family wedding and I mean if I can’t go then so be it but would only ideally request one day off potentially.

Thank you in advance

Holidays are not allowed during phase 2

.......................................................................................................Takes too long to retrain new entrants even if they have a day off training!!

Most training establishments take an Easter leave break lasting about two weeks. If all your training goes to plan you may be lucky and your family event may coincide. There will be others more in the know than myself who will give the up to date situation.

I see. Never mind just play it by ear and try and judge where you are nearer the time. I believe it is possible to get weekend leave during Phase 2 so perhaps that will be a help.

As 1 Jun is a Saturday I would expect you to be able to get away for it. You should get 3 out 4 weekends off during Phase 2, and if you ask early enough it would seem reasonable to expect to be excused any duty that weekend.

Yeah I will do that thank you! As it’s an Indian wedding it lasts a week but I never expected/anticipated to get that time off anyway!

Its a weekend, you might get lucky. Always worth mentioning it to Phase 2 Divisional staff nearer the time. If people know in advance it helps. However it depends on what the course programme has in store for you on/around that date. Good luck.
 
Weddings were once suitable occasions* for a 'Rig Run' and this might still be the case - worth enquiring of your instructional staff and hosts?

*Opportunity to wear uniform** with (lower case) pride whilst giving the ladies the option to 'Touch your collar for luck, Jack?'

**Long white tapes securing silk & lanyard were favourite at weddings, too. (Traditional yet probably never sanctified within Pussers Dress Regulations and I never heard of anyone getting trooped for wearing 'em either.)

I understood it to be long white tapes for groom only.........if there are a bunch of your oppos there in rig it will help the bride to spot new hubby after downing umpteen glasses of bubbly.....or not. ;)

Every rig wedding I attended as a JR only the groom had white tapes, including my own wedding.

I think it's a tradition to mark out the condemned man ;)

How could they see to hang someone, was it by feel?

The hood went over the head of the condemned after they were on the trapdoors of the scaffold and before the noose was put on (see the book Executioner: Pierrepoint). According to Pierrepoint, this was only a matter of a second or so before he opened the trapdoors and dropped the condemned to break his neck.

There are examples on display at the former Crumlin Road Prison, Belfast. The gallows there are still in place and in working order.

There's a working gallows in Guz Dockyard, built during the Napoleonic wars. For use by the French to enforce discipline on their own people. Whilst the death penalty was still available for things like treason and fire in HM Dockyard one of the major prisons also had a working gallows. Now death penalty is no more they've probably done away with it.
