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. Argument amongst the kiddies in the troop, thought I would seek an answer from a wiser source :wink:

    Under the new system..

    When you sign off is it 4 years service from the

    1. The date you finish Phase 1?
    2. The date you finish Phase 2?
    3 The date you sign your oath of allegiance? (I raised an eyebrow at this hopeful lass!)
    4. The date you rock up for Phase 1?

    There is a considerable beer tokens riding on this I am told...
  2. I thought it was from either your 18th birthday OR from the date you signed your oath, whichever is later.
  3. Kermit is spot on!!


  4. If she swallows .... I'm sure we can cum to some arrangement :)
  5. Date you signed your oath?

    Any advances on Date you signed your oath?
  6. ie the date you swore the oath of allegiance and signed on the dotted line - your pensionable service date.
  7. Just dug out my old engagement.

    It is 3 months from the date of your attestation.
  8. i joined at 17 and didnt do any service til i turned 18, had to do 4 yrs minimumu and now all bonuses come as a birthday present!! if over 18 it is at the end of phase 1 because the PVR rules for cryaway sprogs
  9. 3 months from taking oath is usually around the end of Phase 1 so yeh.

    But it's is by definition.

    '3 months after your attestation' so if you dont start Phase 1 for a year after that then it's tough for the army. 1 years less service.
