RNAS Yeovilton - Draft

Hegs44

Newbie
Hi
My son is just about to complete his Phase 2 AET at Sultan and has been drafted to Yeovilton for phase 3. I'm not familiar with the area and was wondering how it was for visiting etc etc.
Thanks
 
Its in the middle of nowhere, nearest town/village is Ilchester, has a few pubs and a hotel (Northover Manor), Yeovil is about 8 miles away and has loads of pubs and hotels/guest houses.

First may I point out that the RN unlike the army do not get posted, they get Drafted so therefore your son has a DRAFT to Yeovilton. Don't worry about it though as it is a common mistake and you will soon get used to the term.
Yeovil is fairly easy to access as it is just off the A303 see:

When I was there if anyone had family they were allowed to sign them into the establishment after completion of work and at weekends, this was over 30 years ago but I reckon that it will still be done.

I'd like to point out that you do not get drafted anymore. You now get Assigned by the issue of an assignment order.
 
stay at the Ilchester Arms, it's 5 minutes down the road from the base by car, a lot of families of serving personnel stay there when visiting.
