whats the £80 used for?

ElectroDreams is talking about the sum of money you are meant to take with you to HMS Raleigh when you start Basic Training.

£80 is a bit steep to expect a 16 year old just out of school to have lying around?

IMO a new joiner should be able to turn up at Raleigh with nothing but the clothes he stands in and have everything issued (including a haircut).

Just curios as didn't it used to be £50?
not sure why they tell you to bring that much. however in the first week its £5 for a haircut if you need one, and i think in week 3 we paid £22 to cover our laundry charges for the whole 9 weeks. apart from that you will be buying bits and pieces from the Naafi e.g. boot polish, toiletries, cleaning products, food and drink and also you get the chance to go to the pub if you pass the week 5 kit muster. which i have tomorrow :D !

its a bit confusing on here :s so you pay for laundry but still have to hand wash and buy washing powder and things?
£5 for a haircut when they just run a number 2 over you ? lol i paid £4 50 for a number 2 back and a cut on the top and sides what do they do, patterns or something ?

do what Im gonna do mate....shave me head with a number 1 before I go in then refuse to have a hair cut :)
Why would you need to refuse to have a haircut if it's already short enough?

Unless of course you have some sort of ulterior motive to see how you can thumb your nose at those in authority....if you start down that route, you won't get to the end of Phase one. :roll:
