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. Do they still make recuirts swear an oath of allegiance
  2. Yes, they do, I had to swear it last year.
  3. Why do you ask P_07?
  4. just wondered why
  5. 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.

  6. Mine still hangs on my wall all these years later.
  7. It's an umbrella, that's all.
  8. No, it's a piece of card with print on it :wink:
  9. Shit! I've been robbed then! :D
  10. so u dont have an option too not do it
  11. No. Why? Have you an issue with declaring an oath to the Queen?
  12. Don't join then.
  13. Yes you have an option. Its called not joining the British army, Try the legion of frontiersmen they might take you.
  14. Mine, and my sons, still hang, framed in our living room, and I still stand by my promise, which I first gave in 1958.

  15. 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.
