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. When your doing your basic training when or if do you have leave? its not something im bothered about its just i have people asking when i may be back next and i really dont have a clue.

    You'll get the normal leave periods crimbo/easter/ summer etc that the rest of the establishment get, your training team deserve leave as well... :thumright:
     
  3. For officers it's 2 weeks at Easter, 5 in summer and 3 at xmas, but during that time your expected to do some extra offsite training or something.
