Tradition of asking the CO a question?!

#1
OK,
So i understand that keeping with tradition, an Officer must ask the CO his permission to marry?
Does this still stand? Even in the TA world i think its a nice touch?

Thoughts? - No p1ss takers?! :)

You are marrying your CO - good to see that sort of commitment considering its only TA. Well done and best of luck to you two.

Only if it coincides with a training weekend or Camp.

Play safe, get married midweek. Better still, during the same day as your drill night - it'll give you an excuse to escape early. :)

i recently got married and asked permission from my CO to get wed in uniform. The int cell carried out checks on the loc and when the ok was given my CO and the Brig gave their blessings.

Indeed you should ask your CO for permission and do it in writing.

When I commanded, I had the honour of being asked for my permission which, of course, I was delighted to give.

It's a nice tradition and, as an earlier poster said, the letters will be something to show your grandchildren!

Congratulations!
