Is this normal and do you really need everything on that list??
 
Well if you think, if you turn up at Raleigh be it 8 weeks (RN) or 2 (RNR) you are effectively moving home for that period so you need all that stuff. I used to be in the TA and effectively you pulled a 16+ hours a day so there wasnt always the time. Better have and not need than need and not have.

Apparently the only thing that no 1 son didn't use once out of all that was the spray bottle - coz his iron had a spraying gizmo of its own! He did also find the NAAFI useful for things - like decent dusters when he discovered the ones he took with him were useless, but remember you can't get to the NAAFI straight away, so take everything if you can.

hope the little changes made might make a little more sense. when you go for your pre joining brief.

also when you learn to do your shoes you wont use your yellow dusters. you will use either a silvet cloth or cotten wool (you buy them both from the naffi).

you will use your yellow dusters for cleaning your trainners and locker and for your kit musters.

Well a few years ago i wen't for a week down to raleigh with college, kind of a see if the navy is for you thing.
Packed everything into a week,Marine endurance run,Damage Repair, swim test and those funny orange suits( which has plastic face covers and the pool was steaming hot). We talked to recruits who we're 7weeks into training, alot of them thought it was going to be harder. Guess training isn't what it used to be.

Thats not just the navy :evil:
 
Erm... This should all be supplied FREE by Pusser! As to shaving kit: all you need for shaving is razor + blades plus soap. Shaving soap/cream is totally unnecessary - I wash my face every day and shave my moist face. As for aftershave/moisturiser!?! OK Stokers need it, but ROs?

Why do the girls need 7 pairs of keks but the lads only need 1 - sounds pretty unhygenic to me! Smelly lot! And what do you need a tracksuit for when shorts, vest and plimsoles will suffice. Talk about softies! :lol:

Strange lot.
