The Graduation Parade for a junior soldier is a significant event in their military journey.  It typically marks the completion of their initial training and the beginning of their service as a fully-fledged member of the armed forces. The parade serves as a ceremonial transition, symbolizing the soldier's readiness to take on their duties and responsibilities.

During the parade, the junior soldier, along with their peers, showcases the skills and knowledge they have acquired during their training. This often includes marching in formation, performing drills with precision, and demonstrating proficiency in various aspects of military life such as weapon handling and field tactics.


Family members, friends, and fellow soldiers often attend these parades to show their support and celebrate the achievements of the junior soldier. It's a proud moment for everyone involved, marking the culmination of hard work, dedication, and perseverance.

The Graduation Parade also serves as a reminder of the commitment soldiers make to their country and their willingness to serve with honour and integrity. It's a moment of reflection on the challenges that lie ahead and the importance of camaraderie and teamwork in facing them.


Overall, the parade holds great significance for a junior soldier, representing their official entry into the military community and the beginning of their journey towards fulfilling their duties and serving their country.


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.


Each Oath is handmade using the name and enlistment details you provide. With crisp, clear print on specialist high-quality textured paper, we insert your choice of name and enlistment details to make the Oath truly personal to you or the recipient of the gift. 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.
