  1. 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!
  2. Weldone m6 and good luck for phase 2. Could you do a diary of what it was like at raleigh.
  3. Well done Chris, I do hope all your kit is ready!
  4. Well done Chris mate.

    Hope to be in your position in the near future.
  5. Well Done buddy :thumright: :thumright:
  6. Surely you've got a uniform to perfect rather than brag on here? Seriously though, well done shipmate!

    Well done, good effort fella.
  8. I'm at Raleigh at the moment on a proffesional course.

    Meant to be on divisions unless it rains

    Im praying for rain

    Good luck though :thumright:
  9. Well in

    Make sure you take all your kit to Collingrad

    I'll tell you now it is a whole new ball game

    When can I expect you to be named as my relief???
  10. Congrats Chris. At Collingrad you can stop parading your keks in your locker and start wearing them. That way you won't get any more bollockings for having skid marks on your trolleys! o_O

    Don't forget to pack your special sock: Mandy, isn't it? ;)
  11. All the best mate, now apply for boats and come on over to the dark side.

    Well done Chris, hope it's nice & sunny for divisions. :thumright:
  13. If you had got him to join as a Submariner you would be 8 weeks closer to £1000 in your pocket
  14. Christ - you don't ask for much!! :pottytrain2: Do one yourself yer lightweight!!

    Very true - I'm going to change who I socialise with and start coining it in!!
  15. Well done mate, I only passed out 6 weeks ago, which division were you in?
