Phase 2 question

I’ll be doing my phase 2 training at hms Raleigh as I’ve applied to join the logistics branch

I know phase 2 is a bit more relaxed and you can go home at weekends but I was wondering at what time on the Friday are you allowed to leave ?, I’ll be leaving a wife and daughter at home so I was just trying to work out how often I’ll be able to get home during phase 2 (I currently live in Glasgow)

Also if anyone has done the commute between Raleigh and Glasgow, what’s the best way to do it ?

If anyone could give me any advice on this I’d much appreciate it

Thanks

I’ve no idea if you’ll finish at lunchtime on Friday or not, but for getting to Glasgow then a drive to Bristol and flight to Glasgow is probably the quickest/best way.

I'm just about to go to Raleigh for Phase 1 from Glasgow, obviously I can't go home during that, but in Phase 2 I'll be making the long arduous journey by car when I do go back to sunny Loch Lomond.

I thought about driving but would probably be cheaper flying with the fuel you would use ha
Aye but by the looks of it, a drive from Raleigh to Exeter (not having a car with you) is a long time by bus - too long for me haha. I've a few mates who do the drive from Portsmouth in 6 and a half hours or so, so it's no much more i'd guess.

6 and a half hours is ok

I thought it would be more, I’ll probably drive aswell then, that’s that sorted

Just had a look and they do a direct flight, looks more expensive than Bristol but it’s a shorter drive from Raleigh so looks the best option so far
You can get travel warrants I believe? If I’m wrong please correct me :)

Excuse my stupidity haha but what’s a travel warrant ?
Travel warrants allow you to travel home from your unit a set number of times in the year, I think it used to be 12. You just go to the UPO and they will set it up for you.

As far as I know, I may be wrong. ET (MESM)...I'll look into that, but either way...
ET(MESM)'s do Phase 2 at Sultan (Gosport) and Plymouth to Portsmouth by road is roughly 4 hours. Plymouth to Glasgow by road is roughly 10 hours.

Bitter experience of both trips, many times :(

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but you won’t be entitled to warrants during phase 2. Warrants are applicable during phase one training (the allowance is called Get You Home (Early Years) and you’ll probably only qualify for one or two) or when you’re assigned to a sea-going Unit (or SLQU for the pedantic out there!) when you’ll be entitled to 10 per year pro rata. You will, however, qualify for another allowance during phase two, Get You Home (Travel), if you maintain your own property more than 50 miles from your place of work (you’re responsible for council tax and bills etc). This is paid with your normal wages. All will be explained at the start of your respective courses by your friendly UPO staff I’m sure ;)
