HMS Raleigh is the home base for the Royal Navy's basic training in Torpoint (A ferry ride from Devonport).
HMS Raleigh consists of [basic training]], S&S school, Seamanship school, Firefighting school, HAVOC and the RF/DF training school (Weapons training est.). Also, Raleigh is the home of the RM Band at Plymouth.
Once their 1st week is over week, they are put through their next 7 weeks of basic training, learning the trades that they will use for the rest of their career's (apparently).
Upon passing out/passing in (tomatoâ€™s / tamatoâ€™s), ratings who are placed within the warfare branch will spend a further 2 weeks at Raleigh, within the Seamanship school, learning how to tie knots (sorry buffer, meant bends & hitches) and your basic seamanship skills that will help you at 3am in the pitch black in the middle of the sea!
Wheeler's is the place to be on a Wednesday night!
