Dear Sir/Madam,

I was wondering if I could have a copy of the drill manual used by the Royal Navy. I am hoping to join the RN myself once I am old enough and would like to start 'revising' on it.

Yours faithfully,

Dear Mr Plant,
With regard to your recent FOI request seeking a copy of the Royal Navy
Drill Manual; I am in the process of preparing the document for release,
however, it is a substantial manual consisting of over 500 pages. As such,
to provide you with an electronic copy will be extremely difficult due to
scanning limitations. It would be much easier for me to send you a hard
copy however, for me to do this you will be need to provide me with a
postal address.
If you are content to do so, please can you email the following email
address: [email address]
I would also suggest using a personal email account to contact us as
anything you post or submit through Whatdotheyknow.com is published on
their website automatically which would include your address details for
all to see.
I look forward to hearing from you further.
