Army Number

#1
Anyone know how long it takes for your army number to come through once you have been attested? There is a guy in my unit who seems to have been waiting forever.

I had finished my CMSR (again) by the time I got my new number. I had a different service number though, so I guess it took longer for them to change it to a new 300 number. I have done alot of MATTs training that they wont tick the box for as I used my old number for. Think it was about 5 months until I got my new number

Numbers should be lightning fast now JPA is in (no sniggering at the back)

We had some guys attested on Tuesday night and they get thier numbers today

I can only take it the issue is the change over to the new system

Seven months all told.

However this is mainly due to the fact that they obviously thought I was a filthy terrorist / bankrupt / drug dealer as my SC clearance took forever and got in the way.

How come you got a new number then? I rejoined after a fifteen year break and i kept my old number.

Yeah I heard a couple of guys say that. Guess they just want to keep me on my toes, and it would clearly be wrong if I kept the number that I know and like and that adorns all of my kit, that would be madness.

I went from a 252 number to a 300. There was just over a year between changing it, maybe there is a cutt off point?

maybe that's why m,ine is taking a while, because of my name sounds a bit dodgy, the recruit team thought i was russian or something dodgy, it's also how i got the nickname praying mantis as its the nearest thing to my name that they could pronounce 8O

Once the clerical staff have uploaded your details to TRHA the number comes back within the hour on a good day and the following day on a bad day.
