I posted this a while ago... but all to no avail! anyone care to speculate? Heyy, after many weeks of shitting myself not knowing if i've passed my security check. I had the clear finally earlier today! My credit rating is absolutely terrible as I keep missing payments due to me losing my bloody job!!! Grrrrr Just a few question to clear up now before I go! 1. I realise that obviously you have to share rooms with everybody else but after the 9 weeks basic ... what happens then? I'm training to be a ETWE(SM). 2. What happens with i'm not on a boat? Do I still get submarine pay? 3. I've come to understand that the 9 weeks basic at Raleigh is tough. My question is after the 9 weeks, because i'll stay at Raleigh, do they "lighten" up kinda thing!? Thanks in advance guys!!!
