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, Can any one here give me any details on how long it takes for a MOD F90 to be issued,as I have been in TA now for 3 months and have not heard anything. I have been unable to contact my admin section as they were closed for christmas.
     
  2. What do u need it for ?

    Giving it 'large', showing all and sundry, impressing the birds, scouring the World for Forces discounts. He will be bored of that soon enough though...

  4. The short answer is, it'll take as long as it takes...

    Bear in mind that a lot of TA Units hold the MoD90s centrally to prevent losses (and big-timing, of course). If you need it for your role, deployment, courses, etc., you'll be issued it.

    Yes.

    No. Everyone should have their MOD90 with them. This has been the case for the last 5 years.

  6. Cheers, MSR. I stand corrected. :oops:
     
  7. Mine took a couple of months to arrive anyway, so keep waiting for now.
    But, double check that your unit have got your blood group information/evidence, as that seems to be the reason that a lot of people arent getting them (at my unit, anyway)
     
  8. My reason for asking is I belong to a specialist unit who only meet on OOCT and Summer Camps,and I have a few training courses line up and will need F90 for access to camps etc
     
  9. Thats a fair answer.

    in that case chase up your unit.

    alot of units keep them and issue out for camp ect. so you will need to keep chasing.
     
  10. Thanks, will check with admin
     
  11. on a different note, does anybody remember the old MOD90 that preceded the credit card version of the id card. Old paper/card with clear laminated plastic and B&W photo, i had one in around 1990....however, what was before that??
     
  12. Until it arrives, ask for a "chit in lieu."
     
  13. nice and pink in colour and the pic was you holding your number below your chin. I think I had one of those from 1984 until 1992.

  14. Which, further to MSRs earlier post, it is a requirement to have, if haven't been issued your MOD90 yet. There seem to be some slack drills round your way.
     
  15. Yes, the number was written on an eight numbered "flip chart" type thingy, I still have mine !

    Also still have the laminate version.
