How many cadets are there to a cabin, when you first join BRNC? Out of interest.simonjgriffithshr said:
Depends on your division, and there's been a lot of re-organisation since I was there, but we had everything from messdecks of about 20 through cabins of six down to singlies. I was in a cabin of three.dunkers said:How many cadets are there to a cabin, when you first join BRNC? Out of interest.simonjgriffithshr said:
How things have changed, I spent one term in an 8 berth cabin, and one in the messdeck, about 100 of us in rather rickety steel bunks.silverfox said:There is one messdeck still open (The Zoo for those who remember) which takes about 24 people - which is pretty much the whole male new entry for one Squadron. The other Squadron NE go into smaller messes as described by Karma. The 2 Squadrons rotate the use of the Zoo although as CSO I always liked to have it for my NE as it helped team spirit and , more importantly, the Cunningham Squadron Chief has his office next door!!
After the first 7 weeks you will move into 4 man cabin prior to Initial Sea Training - when you return from that and become a Senior you will have a cabin to yourself.
You'll need some plain clothes, your own running shoes (recent experience confirmation please) and some personal sports kit. But that'll be on the joining instructions.Potential_Officer said:...I had been under the impression that some kit had to be bought...
