Remeber it in blocks of four. So if your number is 12345678, when asked for your number, say it as 1234...5678.

It'll make it easier for you at a later date.

I found mine quite easy to remember.

Just write it in (non-permanent) pen on your hand and after a few days you'll have it commited to memory.

I'm more of a 3-2-3 man myself... digits 4 and 5 are the same, it sounds better that way, ye dig?

BTW, army number begins with 3? That's a bit high isn't it? have 4 million people joined since me?

As well as remembering all eight digits, also learn the last four and the last three, the Army's equivalent of shorthand.

Oh, by the way, now you've got your number, you can be proper person on ArmyNet, ARRSE's sister site.

Also very useful for PIN numbers....first 4, last 4, middle 4, first2/last2....you'll never forget them.

Damn it's serving bods only, thought I'd have another forum site to waste my work time on, but no luck there.

Remember of course the last three, the middle two, how to recite it backwards because it will all help when you are trying to book in p1ssed or when you are patiently waiting to be permitted to exit the gas chamber.

and remember it's always a zero and never an 'O'. There is no such number as 'O'.

With the introduction of JPA early this year (so Ive been informed) the Regimenal numbers jumped from 252xxxxx up to 8 figure numbers starting with a 3xxxxxxx. Wonder who got a sh*t top shelf number of 30000000, you wouldnt get too drunk with that :wink:

How many times are you asked for your full number?
How many times are you asked for your last three?

007 sounds better than zero or 000!
