    hey Jordan is this possible same way if he was born in Jamaica and he get his citizenship in England before he died,because his birth certificate would be showing that he was born in Jamaica and his british passports will be showing how he travels and they are stamp up as well

    Hi, I checked the army website for information on commonwealth applications and I found this:

    Service Liability Letters.
    Some countries require their nationals to carry out compulsory Military Service or Government Work. Applicants who are still liable for such service in their home countries are ineligible to join the British Army. Some applicants will require a letter confirming they are free of such service liability and that they have permission from their Government to join the British Army. Those countries are:
    Bermuda
    Botswana
    Cyprus (SBA, Republic) Malaysia
    Mozambique
    Singapore


    I believe this applies to the naval service as well. I am from Singapore and I'd like to know how I can obtain the letters and permission of this sort.

    It also applies to countries in which an overseas applicant may have voluntarily served in that countries Armed Forces, regular or reserves who may still be serving or are subject to recall.

    All you need do is contact your local Armed Forces recruiting body & request written proof that there is no previous record of your having military service and you are not subject to (call-up if your country has conscription) recall and have no reserve liability.

    Bear in mind your Armed Forces are under no statuary obligation to produce this letter, there is no standard format but you need it to join the UK Armed Forces, so be polite when explaining your circumstances and remember they are doing you a favour, not the other way around.

    If you already have former military service in your country, you'll need to produce evidence of service & discharge category.

    In my country two years of full time national service (conscription) is mandatory. I'm not sure about reservist requirements (as there are many Singaporeans living overseas) but they seem pretty strict too. Singaporeans joining HM armed forces are extremely rare and there is no information on this sort of thing.

    Hi,

    Thanks Ninja.
    Apparently we have this thing in Singapore called exit permit and disruption to National Service. It excuses us (temporarily) from full time National service and reservist duty. Many Singaporeans who study abroad or work overseas apply to these permits. Although it is supposed to be temporary, many people simply extend their permits so that they can work overseas for long periods of time. Will presenting the certificates and documents for this permit be enough to fulfill the requirements?
