Question about LE Officers

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Hey there, Im a bit of a newbe to ARRSE, but Im hoping this would be in the right part of the forum. Apologizes if its not.
    My questions really simple, but I've not been able for find the answer.
    Do Late Entry Officers keep there regimental number after receiving there commission, or do they go to the 6 number format?
    Probably a stupid question, I know, but its something thats been playing on my mind through my service, and still does in civi street.

  2. They used to get a new number (6 digits) but recently and I'm afraid I can't remember precisely when, they started to keep their old numbers.
  3. Ah, thanks mate.
  4. With the introduction of JPA, you keep the first number assigned to you throughout your career, regardless of change of circumstances. We've had ex-soldiers keep their Army number whilst being RN Ratings - it's all to do with personal entitlements (like LSA etc).
