Attestation

#1
Swore my Oath Of Allegiance today.

A much prouder moment than I thought it would be.

Also, only one step closer to starting phase 1. :D

You can go along if you like, especially since you seem more curious than the monkeys at a safari park.

And yes other parents will be there aswell before you ask. :p


Edit: oh yeah, make sure your lad knows his army number btw

To avoid him looking stupid make sure that he can read and knows "heirs" is pronounced "airs" and not "hairs."

Might be a bit late for that!

But I am certain that Somersetlady will rise to the occasion... new hat and new frock, Mum?!

Litotes :D

My bold.
I do know my number of course. But there was no mention of it on the day.
We did have a group of marketeers watching us though, so maybe it was done a bit differently.

You do it again at Phase 1 anyway, as for some reason not everyone does it before arriving (here at Pirbright anyway).

Normally, we read it out line by line and the Recruits repeat after us, some even remember to put their own name (i.e. John Smith) in the right spot rather than repeating "your name"...

I'm guessing you're an instructor at Pirbright then?

I cannot wait to start there now.

It's good to hear you're attestation went well, Russell. Did you have to do it in front of an audience?

I have my attestation this Tuesday at the City Hall, so it's going to be interesting.

From what these guys have said, it's nothing to worry about.

Anyway, I look forward to seeing you down at Pirbright ;)
