Intakes at Raleigh

Right, I've tried the search facility, tried the RN site and tried asking the wife - no joy.

Purely as a matter of interest, how large and how often are the intakes to Raleigh.

If you don't know, then any appropriate sarcastic, vitriolic, malicious, mischievous answer would be appreciated. Inventive invective, even more so.

My thanks, in advance.

I don't think anyone really knows the answer to that just yet, Taffd. They recently froze the intakes into Raleigh though a brother of one of my friends was today given a Raleigh start date in July so hopefully that's a sign that the machine will start regurgitating recruits through again. I, however, know nothing.

60 a week eh? Never thought it would be that many. Assumed it would be fortnightly or monthly.

Again, many thanks.

As I said in my post, that was how it was before the recruiting freeze, it may be that it goes to 40 every foirtnight (if you re-read my post you will see that I made no inference to intakes being 60 after May).

Yeah, I got that thanks. Though I didn't mention it, I was actually talking past rather than future. I only asked because it cropped up in conversation with my son, who starts in the near future.

I'm an ex-matelot myself and want to be supportive, but find that I appear to know more about the Marines than about the RN of today.

From what I can gather, intakes will be every week again as of May - I have a start date for the end of may, followed by someone I know from the RNAC having a start date for a week mine after and then someone else off the RNAC the week after that.

As to intake size, will have to wait and see!

Intakes start on the 8th May and there will be 5 consecutive entries. Thereafter it fluctuates a little. In general it will average out at about two entries every three weeks for the next year. There will be about 55 per entry. You can do the maths.

Does that mean there will be about 1925 new recruits between may 2011/2012?

I said "You do the maths" and you got it wrong. It's about 1600 as you have to account for 8 weeks leave when Raleigh is closed.

Sorry I was just curious to see if I had about the right figure but I forgot about the holidays. Thanks for correcting me anyways.
