Hiya Rikko,

The wording on the letter is usually something like "provisional offer of service" and is written as such for a variety of legal reasons, (in order of probability) such as:

1. You may not yet have full security clearance
2. You may not yet have proven you have a valid passport
3. You may not have accepted the offer of service & returned all documentation as requested & provided 4 passport photos.
4. You may develop a medical condition that you haven't yet declared or hasn't yet occured.
5. The government may opt to stop recruiting or training or your entry date is changed by CTC.
6. You get in trouble with the police
7. Family circumstances change & you need to defer your entry
8. You may get struck by lightning, etc.

The only thing you may sign at your pre-entry brief is the receipt for your MoD Travel Warrant, you do not actually "Attest" (Sign-on/ swear an Oath) until you arrive at Lympstone.

My advice is to submit your statutary months' notice exactly one month before your provisional entry date unless your Careers Adviser suggests there is a problem with regard the administration aspects of your eligibility to enter service & advises otherwise.

As long as you tick all the boxes numbered 1-3 above, and 4-8 don't occur, you should be OK

Good Luck!
