Couple of questions about ID cards.

#1
Hello. I have a couple of questions regarding basic training.

1.) I know you get that list telling you all the cards/passport/birth certificates you need to take with you. What I wanna know, do they keep possesion of it all? The passport in particular?

2.) I heard someone going on about army ID cards. Just wondering do they have date of birth and all that on or just the basics like name, number etc?

Reason I ask these questions, I am aware that I look about 10 years old. Just wondering if I should get a seperate ID card like a Validate or something or whether I'll have something to hand which I can use as proof of age.

No idea about the id cards. When you hand your forms in at your interview all they do is keep photocopies and give them you back 10 mins later.

Similar question: when you start basic, is it ok to take just your passport and driving license if you have lost your birth certificate, or do you have to get hold of a copy of this as well?

You get your docs, and passport back.

I'm pretty sure that the new ID cards have you DoB on them also.

If you are thinking of using your MOD 90 as proof of age regarding entry to a pub/club i would advise against it. Unfortunately some places will not allow military in. If they spot your MOD 90 "your not coming in as you all start fights"

Sad that this is the attitude they hold but some do.

Just how new are these new ID cards? Mine was renewed 6 years ago, so not exactly ancient is it?

You will probably be issued with a chit in leiu, a temp. until they think you're mature enough to handle the real thing.

not quite sure, could be a year but cannot be certain. I have just got my new one.

six years is well out of date but still does the job.

I think (not sure and this is a guess) that they came out when JPA started. and this is another guess, that soldiers could be identified by the 8 digit number and officers by the 6 digit number berfore rank was put on them. now all ranks start with 30****** they decided to put ranks on.

This is based on a guess and please do not quote me on this.
