Thats basically the jist of things!

It's just a history project, write a diary from the perspective of a soldier from 1945. I chose Desert Storm, we did WW1 diaries earlier in the year too...

I didn't realise you were at school. All army numbers at the time were 8 digits long and started with 2. Though I hardly think your teacher is going to dock you marks for getting that wrong.

Fcuk me, I remember having to do sh1t like this at school. I paraphrased large sections of Charlie Sheens dialogue from Platoon and applied it to a 1914-1918 context, and the Teacher liked it. Creative writing served me better in that case than historical accuracy.

Say, if I was to write a story of said Soldier on TELIC/HERRICK, would they have had there number changed?

Thanks :)

Hint - it was the Americans who called it desert storm, not the UK. Operation Granby is the name.

No, your regi number is yours for life.

8 numbers starting with a 2. That is all you need.

How about 29999999?

Another question, if, say the AT was... 2465-8540, would say, a Clerk be, 2465-8541?

Anyone could be the next number either side of you. I think they're just given out in batches to each region so the next number after yours will just be given to the next person in that region who joins (the number 'next to' mine went to a lad who joined up on the same day as me at the same recruitment office. I'm Signals, he went to Royal Tank Regt, I think).

By the by, there's no dash in the middle of the numbers. They're just 2508**** (or whatever).
