Pride in Army life

One of the most important things soldiers learn is to take pride in themselves. That’s what enables them to take pride in their work, in their behaviour as individuals and in the unit they belong to.

The passing out parade

People mark the end of the first stage of their training with what the Army calls a ‘passing out’ parade. Family and friends are invited to watch as they formally become soldiers, and this is often described by soldiers as the proudest day of their lives. And for those looking on, it’s an emotional time as they see people they know making a successful step into a new career.



Army values and standards

All organisations have their own values and the Army is no different. But because the work the Army does all over the world is so important, it takes its principles more seriously than any civilian employer. And that’s why these core values, as well as common standards of behaviour, are set down in one place – for all soldiers and officers to work and live by.
