Off to Raleigh

Discussion in 'Joining Up - Royal Navy Recruiting' started by ChrisA, Oct 4, 2007.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Hi all,

    Well my bag is (mostly) packed and I'm all set for Sunday morning.

    I'm having a family BBQ tomorrow and friends are dragging me out on Saturday night for the send-off so I probably wont get a much chance to post here again before Sunday.

    Just wanted to say thanks to everyone for all the useful threads on RR, they've definitely made the recruitment process a little bit easier and I know lot more of what to expect after Raleigh too. Special thanks to Ninja for his time answering my many questions! I'm hoping update my blog the moment I have some spare time to visit the internet café (link in signature).

    Jord, Nicky, Matt + others - see you on Sunday!

  2. Hi mate.

    Good luck and give em hell!

    Remember, Raleigh is meant to be a bastard and it's not the Royal Navy (So I've been told :dwarf: )

    Oh and you might want to stick to spring water on that send-off !!

    Crack on mate!
  3. Good luck hope it goes well
  4. good luck matey! I'll be joining Raleigh 4 weeks today!!! See you down there!(Y)
  5. Good luck, keep your head down and try and enjoy your time. Remember the staff ain't picking on you when shouting, it's all part of the 'Raleigh Spirit'.

    Let us know how you get on xx
  6. good luck buddy. :thumright: :thumright:

    Good luck Chris,

    Just remember if anyone at Raleigh shouts at you, they're only taking it out on you because they married an ugly partner. :thumright:

    (Probably best not to tell them that though)

    Enjoy it & let us know how you're getting on when you get a moment!
  8. Best 'o luck there Chris!

    My head hurts after reading JamieWE's post... 8O :? :lol:
  17. Best of luck & try and enjoy it , did mine in 71 when it was all wooden huts , bit different now , you will look back and smile . :salut: :thumright:
  18. Good luck ChrisA and Jamie! I leave in three weeks and I'm already ******* myself! Hope you both do well lads.
  19. I agree with pepperband.

    Why people feel the need to type in text-speak when they have a keyboard in front of them, I'll never know.

    I would say it takes micro-seconds extra to type normally, but it seems to actually take me longer when I try and type in text speak.

    Anyway, good luck mate, give it your all.

    p.s. Anyone like my new avatar? Big Boss FTW.
  20. Morning guys, just closing down the PC for the last time, thought I'd pop on. Just off to the station shortly, will be at Torpoint by 5. Feeling okay at the moment but get rather nervous thinking about arriving in Plymouth and "greeted" by "uniformed personnel" before being whisked off to Raleigh itself.

    Anyway, better go, good luck to everyone else.
