Discussion in 'The Training Wing' started by cmt...hopefully, May 14, 2007.

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. I'm off to Winchester on June 11th, just wondering when I should organise taking the oath?

    I assume that the ACIO won't be giving me a call, leaving it up to me etc, so when would be best?
  2. im going to pirbright on the 16th july and the ACIO said they will contact me and give me a date to go in and do my oath, maybe you should give your ACIO a call ?
  3. its about 2 weeks before you start training that you take your oath
  4. Your ACIO/AFCO should organise your attestation to the Queen, this should be done as soon as you know your enlistment date (Date to go to phase 1 training). Bug your recruiter its his job. Make sure you have the job in the army you want, its not to late to change. If you have a girlfriend make sure see fully understands what you are about to do, or don't give her your mobile number. Too many good lads get out because of girlfriends, 6 months down the line they split up with you any way.
