Service number

So I am former army (reservist) I am curious to know that when it comes to service number, will I keep my original army one or will I be issued a new one?

Might be a stupid question but one I actually am not sure of.

You'll get a brand spanking new Naval one.

Service numbers for Percy and Jack are quite different - as Dapper says, you will be issued a new one.

I thought they were the same format now?
Got rid of the old D numbers when the mob went all military and started pledging allegiance and that stuff.
But agree - OP should get new one.

Navy used to be a letter (mostly D or C for officers) followed by 6 numbers and another letter.
In recent years the Navy moved over to the Army format - my lad joined 5 years ago and has a 8 digit number.
 
Sorry for the semi hijack, but what would be the procedure for an ex Marine re-joining Navy?

Keep my PO number or get a new one?

All 3 services now use the individuals JPA number - 8 digits starting with a 3. If you already have a service number you keep it. I know both Army and RN reservists in regular RN service that kept their previous numbers, and I’m working with a former bootneck that still has his P0 number.
