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. hey guys, any help would be appreciated, so here is the deal.

    tomorrow morning i take my Oath of Allegiance in Cardiff. yay me. problem is i thought it was at 07:50 however when talking to my sister whom is coming with me, she said that she thought it was at 08:50 and i can't for the life of me find my letter with the time on. so i was rather hoping there may be a way to check online? if so could somebody point me in the right direction since i have googled till my fingers almost bled.

    thank in advance for any help =]

  2. tut!. tut!.
     
  3. Get there for 0700.
     
  4. Turn up for 0750: if you're right then you'll be on time. If your sister's right then get a McDonalds and come back in an hour.

    There's no charge for the first five minutes of my time.
     
  5. yeah i was planning on getting there early :) better to be over an hour early than an hour late ;)

    i don't get how i lost the letter though every single bit of paper work i have ever had concerning the army is in a nice little folder in its own drawer :p

    ah well thank you anyway guys :)

  6. I doubt it is 0750 as most offices don't open until about 0830-0900.
    When I recruited you would be expected to arrive about 0830-0900 to get a brief by the recruiter and then the oath was taking about 0945.

  12. Dan, he'll be the one ready with all the tips for your oath. After all, he wrote it. You can't miss him. He'll be driving a Centurion with L Plates.

    Buy him a brew from me.

    Slug hugs and good luck xx
