Got a few questions for my upcoming prnc 23rd till 26th Jan! , which would be better a suitcase or a dufflebag? Im leaning towards suitcase but i dont want to looklike ive overpacked for just 4 days
Also it states i should bring sports shorts amd tshirts, can these be shorts amd shorts that i already own and use at the gym or should i have a specific style of sport kit?
Thanks in advance

In all honesty, I don't think it matters too much. I will be using a holdall. So long as you have everything needed for the 4 days, I'm sure they won't mind if you have bin bags!

Any sports kit you want is fine, just be sensible. I'd recommend taking both jogging bottoms and shorts just incase it's freezing. And they won't care what you've brought your stuff in. I took a backpack for small stuff (phone charger etc) and some clothes in a small duffel bag.

It doesn't matter what you bring your kit in, (I brought a duffel bag, its easier on a train) but many people brought suitcases. No one cares. You might be overthinking it all ;)

Sports shorts and T-shirts are just what you would go to the gym in normally. You use your own kit for the timed run and the physical in the gym. I think it says the shorts have to be above knee high (so no trackies, even if its cold).

You will use the shorts and T-shirt provided in the kit they give you for the squad run, its a good laugh.

Good luck.

Are the running times the same as your PJFT? Read on the navy website and somewhere else there's an extra 10% on? I'm doing it well within time anyway but just curious

Yes the running times are the same as pjft, ive heard that you should not use the extra 10% time as that can class as a fail.

Beards ok at PRNC? I've asked before on another thread but need to make sure :D

I had mine last week and nothing was said to me about my beard. Instructors just said that you need to make sure that you're shaving daily by the time you get to raleigh so that your skin is used to it.

Yeah beards were ok but for first impressions, especially in front of the Warrent officer, i shaved mine away, one guy at my prnc last thursday had a huge neat beard, even the staff were complimenting it.

That's good to know! Was unsure about beards in phase 2. Defo no beards at Raleigh then? I watched royal navy school again recently and the PO walked passed a recruit and said "shit beard Henderson" had me confused :confused:

While I was there you could only have a beard at Raleigh if you had an incredibly bad reaction to shaving, and I'm talking weeping sores and stuff. I have no idea about that RN school show but the PO might have been taking the piss, hard to tell. But yeah since a few weeks ago you can apply for a beard in phase 2 at collingwood. I would assume this applies to other training establishments but don't take this as gospel !
