    I hope so. He has stopped a good career to do this.

    He always wanted to join marines but we felt he was too young. He’d been studying marine engineering with the merchant navy. Heart wasn’t in it after 2 years so we said apply as he may not pass but here we are all ready to start.

    Ah right. So I take it you are used to him being away already then?

    Thanks! He's not named Scot, he's Scottish and my partner. I reckon I could have been more clear :)

    I think I'm prepared but not getting a lot of info so maybe not enough :) He's been training a lot, I think he will be OK - also I prefer to be convinced he will- as he did very good at prmc.
    Moreover he's very much looking forward to the team spirit and bonding with the others in such a hard work context, which is definitely something that will help him go through the day.

    Brilliant. Is he travelling from Scotland? If there is anything I can help you with please ask away. You will get lots of support on here and don’t worry about asking loads of questions. If you prepare yourself for no/very little contact for the first 2 weeks in foundation.

    Thank you! He warned me they might not get access to their phone the first month, so I'm prepared to keep myself busy ;)

    Pardon my french (I usually get away with this excuse) but do you mean introducing here in this thread or on a general P&P subforum that I don't find? Must say I'm not used to forums. Cheers!
