Hi all, Well it didn't seem yesterday I made my first posting on here back at the start of the year. Tomorrow I'll be passing out of Raleigh and moving to MWS Collingwood for 16 weeks Phase Two training! Some top tips for Raleigh: -Get fit before you join; do lots of running and learn to swim if you can't already. -Learn as much as you can about the Navy - it'll help for your exams. -Take 3 pairs of underwear to display in your locker permanently. -DON'T BE ADRIFT! Always at least 5 minutes early. -Be immaculate at all times. It'll pay off. Probably the most important is to keep smiling and don't loose your sense of humour - time will pass incredibly slowly otherwise. Good luck to all those about to embark on their Naval careers and those already in training - it really is worth the effort!
