  1. hey

    I cant find my birth certificate, me and my mum have search everwhere and cant find it .

    I could be leaving anyway day soon for phase one trainin as im on the reserves for harrogate and im actully right near the front of the list so i could be very soon.

    It says you need it in the booklet you get from slection . but i have everthing else , NHS card , passports , natinal insurance , bank card etc.
    so would it be ok not having one when getting to harrogate ?.

    im goin to ask my officer tomoz as the office is now closed , just want to see what yous think.

    thanks luke.s
  2. How do you intend to prove you were born without the relevant certificate?
  3. How did you fill in your application without your birth cert? I had to have mine copied along with NHS details and Quals. You leave it in with all that?

    If you died right now without finding it you'd be well screwed.....
  5. It would be like you never existed....
  6. i cant get one one becuase u have to get it from where you were born and i live hours away from where i was born.
    but if i have to get one ill go get it .
  7. Perfect for deniable ops
  8. A quick trip to mummy's tummy is in order. If its hooked upto a WIFI printer you may get it a little quicker.
  9. no i had it at the time .
    now my mum has missplaced it and cant find it .
  10. You're a walking admin explosion with a bad back, rapidly diminishing family, and a mother you're scared of.

    No need to thank me.
  11. looks like a long trip in the car to go get it :(
  12. I'm quite sure your mum will have hidden it so you can't join up.
  13. If it can't be found and you need to get a new one, ring the GRO on

    0845 603 7788 (8am to 8pm Monday to Friday. Saturday 9am to 4pm).

    They can help you buy a new copy and it will be sent to you by post.

    No need to go anywhere, just give them a call.
