Lost my Dog Tags

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. Hi, I've lost my British Army Dog Tags and need to get some made up but can't remember what is actually stamped on them.

    Blood Group
    Army Number
    Surname
    Initials
    Religion

    I'm not sure if DoB is on there somewhere :?:

    How is the Religion written for Church of England: COE, CoE or CE :?:

    Cheers
     
  2. Have mine, they are in my draw somewhere.

    I will get them out later
     
  3. Walt :lol: :lol: :lol:

    sorry to invade your forum guys but couldn't resist on this one :wink:
     
  4. Go to your sqn clerk and order some new ones, no fuss when I did it and now I've two sets.

    This is only works if you are in and not a walt like halomonkey thinks!
     
  5. Then go to your Admin Office and they'll order some new ones for you and also deduct the cost from your pay without you ever having to worry about it.
     
  6. Anyone who is in would know to go to the clerks, surely.
     
  7. You lost what? 'British Army Dog Tags' ??

    maybe you should join the 'British Army' then?

    Walt. :?
     

  8. This is very true, therefore must be a walt. Especially as he hasn't replied.
     
  9. Maybe he's off trying to find out what a clerk is :lol:
     
  10. this WALT is a popular bloke.

    EagleEyes:

    Don't listen to this lot, they are all pi$$ taking bast@rds. The info on Dog Tags is this:

    Name
    Rank
    Number (make sure that you have all 7 digits clearly marked - mega important)
    Unit
    Date of Birth

    These are what is known as the Big 5 as I am sure you will remember.

    Drop us a line if you need any more handy tips. :thumright:
     
  12. I'm Ex RE so don't have a Clerk or admin office.
     
  13. Very handy tip Mysteron :D
     
  14. Tanks for that.
    The info is for the new aluminium ID tags. Would you know what the old stainless steel ID Tags had on them?
