  2. The Commander of Raleigh, having seen the first two episodes, seemed impressed when he gave his termly address to the wardroom the other week. I'll certainly give it the once over, if only so I can grumble and say "it wasn't like that in my day".

    Hopefully it will be a positive and honest portrayal of the service and likewise will not adversely affect the careers of those who are in it.

  9. Are they not PAT testing electrical stuff these days? Or do you have to turn up with a PAT cert? Now theres a money making scheme that sounds a bit Labour :(

    Apparently the cables seem to go quick which is odd. My sons iron only lasted a week before it frayed and then they cut the cables so they can't be used. He's on his third iron in 4 months now. Don't know what they do to them!

  11. Irons are wonderful tools for making toast and heating cans of soup and other things.

  12. Don't go there, it was missed off the last contract although that's been sorted there's no PAT tester on site!
     
  13. Mate, get yourself on the course (1 day) and earn a few quid on the side :)
     
  14. If only, the "course" is a doddle, getting the job is a different matter (different companies, contracts etc etc etc !!)
     
  15. Just thought anyone who was interested in joining the Royal Navy and wanted to know a little more about what Raleigh life is like.

  17. Haha, people tell me it's the exactly the same from 20-years ago?

    Our whole block are watching it together, purely on the basis the main characters sleep opposite us so it should be quite a good laugh.
     
  18. It looks like a laugh tbqh.
