Just completed the RNAC at HMS Caledonia.

Just arrived home today after a brilliant 4 days away.

I would advise anyone who is offered the course to go on it, its very worth while and get a chance to talk to ask lots of questions that you may not think to ask at the AFCO.

Lot of team work involved, and PT.----> What a bitch that is!!!

Got 11.2 on the Bleep Test.
10.13 on the 1.5 mile run.
Marksman on the sa80.

Had a go on the GPMG, what fun that is.

Also visited the very expensive Ship simulator.
All in all alot of fun.

EDIT. Also going to the AFCO tomorrow to put my name down for the Reserve list for Raleigh incase anyone drops out.
Just thought id share that with you.

There is no such thing as a reserve list. If there was everyone would be on it and that would just be the same as the original list.

Honestly mate, its brilliant. 3 lads bottled it.

One got off the train turned around and got back on the train ha

One missed home and left the next day. (mummys boy)

One nearly drowned so went home.

I feel fitter already, make sure your fit for when you go aswell.
You'll be one step ahead of others when you go to basic.
Oh yea learn hospital corners aswell. :)

Yeah, great fun ... until you have to clean the thing after its had a good couple of few hundred rounds through it!

Glad you enjoyed the course though. I have been on HMS Ark Royal this week and a RNAC came on there for a look

I was one of those on the Ark Royal this week with the RNAC. Had a great time.
It was the first time a lot of the lads had been on a ship. I was lucky enough to spend 5 days on HMS Ocean last year sailing back from Malaga on a families trip.
Did loads of stuff like helicopter rides, live fire rounds, fire control etc. Had a brilliant time on there.

You may remember seeing me in my green rig chatting to PO JJ T**** in the Port pocket of the JR's dining hall.

Hope you enjoyed the course
Yes I remember and yes I really enjoyed the course (it just wasn't long enough)
Just playing the waiting game now :(
