Your new number, does it start with 3001?

I think I am right in saying that anyone enlisting in the army now get a service number starting with the digits above, apparently this is to do with JPA. The Admin office at your unit should be able to clarify this.

As for your old number, I think you have lost that mate! :(

I always thought once you'd had a number issued it was yours for life, not just christmas!

It may affect all numbers soon due to Jpa.

Does that mean that when I re-enlist I will lose my 2507 number and be issued with a new one? God damn it people with think I am a crow!!!!!!!!!

2507? Less said about that the better. Basically if you are already on JPA and transfer to Regular from JPA you will keep the same number. Whereas if you are re-enlisting (after an undefined gap) you will get a new "300" number.

Someone explained to me that this is the diferrence betwen LSN - Lifetime Serial Number and PIN - Personal Identification Number. Hoo haa, its all nonsense but hey, computer she know best.

By the way my hubby's old number started with 2438 - does that make him a nig as well?

I kept my original number in the Regs, UDR and TA.The ex Royal Irish that have joined us now have the new numbers that start 3001,they have been told that they will eventully get their old numbers back.

I joined the TA in 1994 with a mate. he left about a year later and in 2001 he joined the Regulars (Wfr) he retained his service number which is one digit above mine 2484....

The Army are now using TAFMIS Recruiting Harmanization Army (TRHA) for recruiting. This system should record your old details and upload to JPA, when uploading to JPA, JPA should recognise your details and throw back your old service number so long as it migrated when the Army went onto JPA.. Clear as mud??? There's the DS answer, what JPA does is another matter.

Ubique

As G_R says JPA has a mind of its own when dealing with "Re-Hires" as you will be known - sometimes you will get a 30012345 type number other times you will end up with a -2 suffix ie 12345678-2
