Do you have to get up early?
What type of iron works best, will I have room to stow my ironing board in my locker?
Will my Fireman Sam pyjamas be looked on as odd?
Will there be enough plugs/electrical outlets for me to be able to charge my Mobi, iPod, Blackberry and use my hairdryer at the same time?
I'm 17 and 3/4 and have a fake ID that works in my hometown, will I be able to drink beer with my 18 year old classmates?
Will I really have to work 6 weeks before I get any leave? 8O

Oi CNUTS!! I was serious.!! I'm having sleepless nights worrying about this, only just got over my Recruitment Test, PJFT, Medical, Interview and Psychometric Test anxiety attacks.

2 Weeks leave? I would rather do a straight 9 weeks than get 2 weeks off half way through? Is this the same for everyone or just because his training has fell over easter?

I have a question actually, do you have to shave against the grain everyday during basic or is everyday WITH THE GRAIN acceptable?

just because of leave

That's a thurst!
 
I think it's outragous that pre-sailors should be forced to rise early. Surely in these enlikened days they should have a lie in till 0900 when the Cooks will bring them a nice cup of hot tea and hot buttered toast in a silver toast rack.

Seems they get up at the crack of sparrows these days. I'm sure it was 0645 like the rest of the RN when I was in basic.
