HAD OATH TODAY!!!

#1
I took my Oath of Allegiance today in Birmingham Town Hall...
Easily the proudest moment of my life.
We also set a record for the most Junior Soldiers Pledging at a Single time (46).

The way they called us 'Soldiers' really put a smile on my face.
I really feel part of the British Army now.
Thanks to every ARRSE user who has helped me with all my queries.
Even ones who i have disagreed with have shown me that i should wind my neck in :)

AFC Harrogate on 7th September - Here i Come! :D

Hi Kyle... So glad all things went well for you today. How lucky to have such alot of other lads to say your oath with. My son did his today as well, which all went well. Roll on the weekend. Will see you there. :D
 
#3
Thanks, i hope your Son had a good time and was as proud as i was :)
Yeah, will see you there Sunday :D
Have the nerves kicked in yet?

I remember taking my oath of allegiance, proudest moment of that part of my life.

Strangely enough my wife (being a foreigner) when gaining British Naturalisation also had to swear a similar if not identical oath of allegiance,
Something civvies dont do.

What do others think, should civvies swear the same or similar oath?

ps. Congrats mate, hope it all goes well for you :)

Thanks, and yeah the Lord Mayor told us about the Civvie Oath being took.

And im down as Signals even though i passed Selection for RE but there was no spaces.
So i suppose at the moment im Signals but i got until the 21 weeks point to decide :D

If i'm proven wrong though do tell me tomorrow :D

All the more reason to join the greatest Armed Forces in the World :)
Would be pointless if it wasn't hard. It's obviously hard for a reason.
