oath of allegiance

Is this a Wah?

They do it for the same reason it has always been done - because it is psychologically and socially meaningfull and reinforces loyalty and a sense of duty.

Mine, and my sons, still hang, framed in our living room, and I still stand by my promise, which I first gave in 1958.

There are two different OATHs you can do. One if your Religious and the other for none believers with different wording. On your AFCO4 it used to have a box to say if you were a nonbelievable and then I used to confirm my applicants on the Documentation check before Attestation. It was quite funny hearng some of the applicants trying to practice especially getting toungue tied over Heirs and Successors.

when did this bit of paper come in? [serious question]
I can remember swearing the oath, signing for and being handed a days pay and that was it.

You dont get a days pay anymore, I did in 1987 when I joined up but all you get now is the Qath of Allegiance certificate, Train Warrant for the ATR and if you get a nice Recruiter like I was BFH(as per the programme Bullseye Bus Fare Home)

Still have the bible I used to take my Oath. No certificates in the 60s, but is great to have the wee book.

You dont get one of those either now, we had about half a dozen to use on attestations only.
