Do you remember when you first joined up?
It's often said that a picture is worth a thousand words but even that idea neglects all the memories and the stories that go along with it.
We asked those of you in the Armed Forces to send us some of the best pictures you had of your earliest days in the forces.
The response on social media was superb, with many of you reminiscing about the good old days and reflecting on how much has changed over the years.
These are some of the finest snaps of your early days in the forces.
