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. I am seriously thinking of re-enlisting. I have been out for about 5 years, and served just under 6.

    My question is will I retain my old army number? (I am lucky and have a 249 number - was TA then Reg and retained my TA number on initial enlistment.)
  2. Is this a WAH or a lack of priorities?

    Anyway if you get back in probably get to keep old number. Depends on JPA - computer says no.

  3. I don't know why but it seems important to me. Maybe as all my peers will be 5 years further up the ladder.

    Thanks for the answer though, I guess I will just have to give the computer a kiss.
  4. Did you find out the answer?
  5. I think you will find that due to the amount of time you have been out, and the introduction of JPA you will be issued with a new number starting with 3
