    The reason I ask is that I am currently in the process of joining the Royal Naval Reserves, and I was wondering if I could count this toward my Gold Duke of Edinburgh Award, as there would be weekly training nights on naval knowledge/history etc. However, I will be getting paid for the training I do, so I think this would perhaps go against the ethos of the Duke of Edinburgh Award? As I think it might have to be on a voluntary basis?

    Can anyone shed any light on this?
