Dog tags............. are we issued them after RT or when we get deployed to an operational theatre or is dog tags just an american thing? If so whats used to identify us if we find ourselves in the unfortunate position of being dead?

I think we do have them, but ours are little round disks, im pretty sure i'v seen some lads with them on in army recruit videos. I could be completely wrong though :)

I always thought that they were issued when you were deployed and then collected back when you came home. So you don't get to do the American thing of walking round with them on. D'oh.

Issued

You get issued with Dog Tags in Basic Training and keep them for the rest of your career. You'll wear them during basic training and probably when deployed.

What does it say on them? Name? Regiment? D.O.B?
