This is finished off with the proper cap badge, a gleaming, hand-polished coin and the stable belt colours. Each Oath is completed with an elegant facsimile in the style of the Monarch on enlistment's signature. The overall size of the frame is 36cm  x 25cm.

 

The Oath of Allegiance and the Sovereign's Shilling.

The Sovereign's shilling, sometimes called the King or Queen's shilling, is an historical slang term referring to the payment of one shilling given to recruits to the armed forces of the UK in the 18th and 19th centuries, although the practice dates back to the end of the English Civil War. To "take the shilling" was to agree to serve as a sailor or soldier in the Royal Navy or the British Army, and the term is still used informally.  Bearing a genuine coin to represent the "Queen's / King's shilling" and a stylish reproduction of the words spoken on enlistment, each Oath is hand made by ex- service personnel so we can guarantee it is made with real pride and passion and a genuine understanding of what it means to say those words and to serve your country.
