hey mate. summer leave at Raleigh is from the 3rd August till the 2nd of september. the reason why it is a month is because this base works through all bank holidays. not sure about christmas leave yet.
That is what i suggested.. going away on our own, thanks for all the info got an email from the RN community website who have advised the following:
"HMS Raleigh's Main Summer Leave dates are from Friday 3rd Aug 17:00 - Monday 3rd Sept 06:45, Christmas leave dates are as follows Friday 21st 17:00 Dec- Mon 7th Jan 06:45. You will be entitle to claim a warrant for your travel home."
Again thanks alot, 8 days and counting until I go to Raleigh!!
