The new recruits

First published in News by

TWELVE new army recruits from Salisbury swore their oath of allegiance to the Queen as part of their official entry into army life on Wednesday. The Attestation ceremony took place at The Rifles Museum, Salisbury and included a traditional parade of the new recruits in front of their proud friends and family.

Having successfully completed their oaths of allegiance, each candidate received his or her Attestation certificate which marked the final completion of their recruiting process and welcomed them as new members of the British Army.

Anne-Marie Magaharan, 24, from Salisbury, who is joining The Royal Army Medical Corps as a combat medical technician said: “I’ve always wanted to do something a bit different in my career so joining the army really is my dream job. I can’t wait to get started on my training. I will put everything into the job that I’ve chosen to do.”

The 12 new recruits will be employed in a variety of army professions including chefs, electricians, vehicle mechanics and riflemen. For information about a career with the army visit armyjobs.mod.uk or call the Army Careers Information Office (ACIO) Salisbury on 01722 320445.

Bit of a shameless plug for the army isn't it? People are joining the army all the time, why does this group get a special mention?
