Welcome to the Oaths of Allegiance Military Veterans shop.
Thank you for your support. Please note we are fully MOD licensed and checked by British Veteran Owned so you can buy from us in confidence.
We are British ex-Forces based in Consett, Co Durham. Our aim is to produce a beautiful reproduction of the Oath of Allegiance using the words most, if not all, military and police personnel say at the start of their service.
As well as building an Oath for an old soldier, we build Oaths for young soldiers and our Oaths make a fantastic passing-out Parade gift or leaving present or dining-out gift. We can build an Oath for any Corps, Regiment or Service so please just look in the shop but if you can't find what you're looking for, contact us and we will be more than happy to sort it out.
What makes our Oaths special?
Each one is handmade by a time-served military Veteran and is made with real pride.
We understand what the words mean to those who have served, past or present.
We make our own frames, cut our own board to suit each Oath, handcraft each ribbon, hand polish each coin and whenever possible cast and polish our own badges
We get the fine details right
Please remember each Oath is individually handmade with real pride and that is why we consider them to be very special. Because everything is handmade, it takes around 5 - 10 working days but if we can get it to you more quickly we will. We therefore ask you to be patient and thank you for your understanding. If you need your Oath for a particular date please order early and speak to us about the delivery date.
To view our Oaths, simply visit the category links at the top left of this page. The pictures are added when we can so the Oaths may vary slightly in presentation although they will all include the badge, coin and ribbon. The frames are made by us to order and the materials shown may be different to the photographs. If you have any queries about this, please just get in touch on 07454 945571
*We carry a stock of badges but every now and then we need to order badges in. At busy times like Christmas or Father's Day, this may take longer so please order early to avoid disappointment
A little bit about us
The Oaths of Allegiance Military Veterans Shop was founded by Mike Smith who is a former British soldier with the Army Air Corps. The idea for Oaths of Allegiance came from a conversation at an Armed Forces Day event with representatives from the Royal British Legion. Firstly, Mike supplied the children's Christmas party with a number of threepenny bits which were presented as a Coin of Remembrance to remember the three services; Navy, Army and Air Force. He was then asked if he could work out a way of mounting some 1914 to 1917 pennies, again as a Remembrance frame and it's from there that the current project has flowed. Since then we have also extended our range to include medals and to offer Oaths for our Cadets, Police, Magistrates and Prison Guard Services. Our most recent addition has been the George Cross frame for the NHS and Ambulance services along with a unique design to acknowledge our caregivers and key workers from any field of work.
Since we started the project, we have been fortunate to be able to purchase cutting machines and frame-making equipment that allows us to make bespoke items. Please get in touch if you have any ideas for something we can help you with or add to our shop and we'd be happy to hear from you.
