Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Serious questions please for the learned. Does the army still issue the AB108 booklet (Regular Army Certificate of Service)? Is it still in the form of a hard back red book? Has anyone ever used it as a reference for a job? Has anyone ever been asked for it to prove their military service?
  2. Not particulary learned, but you may detect a nuance of the current state of play here.

    I was asked for mine only once, for a Civil Service job.
  3. Tks Mangonel.
  4. I get asked for my red book quite a lot at interviews but I work for ex officers mostly
    thank f*** I got a good one
  5. Thanks the_butler - so you think that if your employers were not ex officers and in the know about the little red book - you would not get asked to produce it?
  6. When I left I took my red book along to every interview but wasn't asked for it once - no one seemed interested when I told them what it was!!!
  7. A photo (Regl tie/Blazier) goes a long way.....
  8. of course it depends on which Regtl blazer & tie!
