Service number retrieval

#1
Hello. I am trying to retrieve my Service number after having one 10 years ago in TA (forgotten). I want it to use on an application for other TA unit. Just wondered if I can just put "dont know" or should I contact Glasgow by post ? Thanks.

What about your original discharge papers or any of the other umpteen documents you were issued in your Army Book 592?

Dont rejoiners get dished out a new one now due to JPA?
Besides if you cannot remember your old one you may as well have a new one, bet you love chip and pin.

Hard to believe you cant remember your number

even a thick cnut like me can remember it after more than 12 years

but to help you out for a small fee of £50 I will sell you my old number

I rarely resort to this but "can't remember my army number"?


Cry "wazzock" and release the dogs of Wah!

Rejoiners get a new number if they left before JPA started. If they left after logging onto the JPA system then they get given their original numbers.

I don't think i've ever met someone who has forgotten there number before, even me old grandad remembered his from WW2.

Doesn't matter if you can remember it or not. After 2003(?) you will get a new JPA number. I was really peed off to loose my 2456.... number to get a new 3006.... number. I must be one of the oldest and grayest buggers to have such a nig number!

I got a prior pre-JPA number back upon rejoining apres JPA. Seems someone in Glasgow forgot to close down my old record or somesuch. It'd be nice if they'd continued to pay me in the interim, but it was not so.

If you have trouble remembering your number, you'll be pleased with this new JPA malarkey. For a small fee (I forget how much, but it's just coppers), you can change your Army number to something more memorable.

Most of my lot have chosen 33333333. Not only is it easier to remember, but if you do forget, you just have to ask a mate.
