    Basically my dad is adamant that the passing out parade at Raleigh (for basic training) is a Thursday.

    I thought it wo a Saturday, someone please shut him up! (and hopefully prove me right!) :help:

    You will have 8 weeks to find out and inform your nearest and dearest of the date of your Pass Out Parade, do you think this will be long enough?
    Why are you arguing with your Father just belt him one that'll shut him up.

    Ambush is the best policy then...use your new ASDA steam Iron for best results.

    It all depends on what day of the week the visiting Admiral is sober and fit and whether his Steward has polished all that gold braid to the required standard. If not it's Fridays.... or er... any day but Thursdays. Then again it might be Thursday. Suggest you make a bet with Dad that it won't be on a Thursday. 10/- either way ought to do it. :) :lol:

    It was, is and remains Fridays... my previous reference to other days of the week referred to the fact that some people will fail Basic Training, so you could 'pass out of Raleigh' on ANY day! :roll: :lol:
