Holidays in the RN

#1
Hey this is probably a stupid question but, do you get certain holidays off in the RN (like christmas and new year) or does it depend on what your doing or where you based?
I'm just waiting for my start date now but basically just want to find out anything I dont know.

I always thought you would work over most holidays but have recently been told differnt.

Many thanks

You get 6 weeks paid leave per year plus all bank holidays.

Whether you actually have the time off at the designated times is entirely dependent on where you are serving.

Ahh ok so there is a possibility that I will work christmas and new years?
I dont mind working through holidays and that, I expected I would when I started the process of joining.

And I haveone other question non holiday related.

I have defaulted on about 3 payments for a loan but I am currently making payments to them now as normal. Is there any chance that could affect my security check?

thanks

Generally not a problem. A mate of mine is currently somewhere like Vietnam, Thailand or around that area, he is visiting about five countries over the holiday period.
There IS a list of no-goes but they are "pretty" obvious, like North Korea for example :)

You're missing the point, Lamri. He may well be somewhere exotic like Vietnam, Thailand, etc, but does he have time to come home for a holiday?



(Hahahaha! Yeah, yeah, I know, I just couldn't resist.)

Theres always time, a mate went w/e to Australia. Needed to get his passport stamped to retain right of residence every 2 years and was close to the limit.
