A surprising number of new recruits struggle with the Kit Muster, which is why there is a series of videos on Youtube to help them be prepared for what is expected of them.

There used to be a problem with levels of fitness because some candidates didn't keep up their fitness while they were waiting for their start date.

As a result, some of them were turning up very out of shape and incapable of reaching the level of fitness required during Basic. This is why the PRNC was introduced, a short residential course with a fitness component which had to be passed and which took place a few weeks before the start date.

Before this happened, the staff at HMS Raleigh were regularly having to send home recruits who were unfit.
