What is it like at BRNC during training?

Hey guys :)

I'm starting at BRNC in January 2017. Just wanted a bit of a heads up of how BRNC will compare to HMS Raleigh during initial training. My brother recently passed out at Raleigh, saying accommodation was very basic/horrid and food not nice xD

As an officer you will be provided with a personal butler, don't worry about anything, it will all be sorted out for you.

Its no 5* hotel and neither is Raleigh but the accommodation is fine and the food is actually quite decent. You will have a lot more to worry about. I'd focus more on making sure you're fit, prepared and have a healthy sense of perspective and humour.

Enjoy the experience.

Your brother was laying it on thick for sympathy. Raleigh is no luxury mansion but it's not bad, and considering the food is free it pretty decent. I imagine BRNC is a fair bit nicer than Raleigh anyway

Having eaten in the Phase 1 Galley in RALEIGH, there is not much difference; if anything RALEIGH is a little bit nicer due to the Ph2 chefs practicing!
