is he a fake???

#1
Hello. ive come to this forum cos i cant find the info anywhere!!!!!
My little sisters boyfriend has said that he is an ex marine and joined in the mid to late 90's. he's shown me a dog tag with bits and bobs on it, with a service number of 'PO65238D'. can anyone tell me if this would be an accurate service number for someone who joined in the mid to late nineties?? or if he has had one of those 'dog tags' made up for him on the net!!!

cheers

And that particular range of numbers would have been issued about 40+ years ago anyway ...sounds a little dodgy ?
:neutral:
That number looks very RN to me not RM, though I stand open to correction.

I joined the RN in 1964 with the number P084*** which was then changed, at a much later date to P084***Q.

HE SAID HE JOINED IN 98. WHAT SORT OF SERVICE NUMBER WOULD HE HAVE FOR THAT TIME OF JOING....I CAN QUIZ THE ****** IF I GET THIS INFO...

Agree that it looks more RN, also, in addition, the only tags we had that I recall were the round red fibre thingys attached to the antigas respirator.

A Royal joining in the mid-90s would have a P048***** to P050**** number issued; the more recent recruits coming through now only have P061**** numbers. Doesn't sound legit to me...

spb,

Are they recycling the old service numbers then?

Maybe I'll get in touch with the newbie who will have my old one eventually ?

THANKS SGT PEPPER......WOULD THOSE SERVICE NUMBERS YOU PROVIDED STILL HAVE A LETTER ON THE END LIKE MY SISTERS BOYFRIENDS HAS??

KEITH
I would say that they should still have a letter at the beginning and end. E.G Mine was P995***P for RMR and 2497***6 for army
