PAYD during Basic training


Lantern Swinger
Hi everyone!

I've had a root around on here and can only find info about Phase 2 PAYD.
Can anyone provide information about if recruits are PAYD during our lovely 10 week stay at HMS Raleigh?
I would like to know for budgeting reasons, I need to "adult" (sadface).

that's really helpful to know too! can you tell me what those payments are for please?
I think you just have to pay for food and accommodation which is automatically deducted.

They will encourage you to sign up for some RN specific charities whilst you're there; these will also be deducted from your pay if you choose to sign up to them.

There is also a shop, cafe and a bar (which I think you can use freely from about week six?) but of course, if money is tight then you don't need to use these.

Other than that it's just money for the endless amounts of polish, shower gel, food bags, lint rollers and dhoby dust you'll use :p

Basically get a 6 item breakfast, lunch, 3 course dinner and a "4th meal" protein bar and milkshake. 7days a week the whole time you're there.
