I heard that it's 30xxxxxx because it's a tri-service number. However, recently when sifting through the mail I noticed a 2nd LT with the number 2521xxxx. Then I was told that officers numbers are now the same as anyone elses. However, I've been led to believe people who join up now are 30xxxxxx???

a lot of the ex r irish lads who joined our unit have been given new 300 numbers instead of keeping their old ones. its like being back in week 1 day 1 trying to remember your number

I'm joining the T.A. soon, but my old number was 248***** - will I still have it, or will I have to memorise a bl00dy new one?

I thought that you kept your original service number, but check with the recruiting office where you are going. Will you be going in with any rank as this may affect it?

Nearly all re-joiners will be given new army numbers.

JPA can very rarely cope with someone getting out to return to service.

Couple of instances of a "-2" after the army number when processing allows the system to recognise an old number.

AFAIK recently commisioned officers will hold onto their 25xxxxxx number until they are gazetted and receive either the 5xxxxx or the new tri service 300xxxxx.

JPA, what a great system.

I was told I would keep the old number, but not the case. The -2 at the end of the numbers I am told is for those that were serving over the JPA change over, and the -2 part is for when deployed on ops, so pay office can cope with not being on TA MTD's so that your parent unit UIN does not get billed for 8 months worth of MTD's.
