SERVICE NUMBER

The J is random, I'm hoping to post you a fuller reply later. My Old fella joined before The PO numbers were introduced and I joined after so hopefully will be able to work out when they where introduced.
The service number suffix isn't random. It's calculated by an algorithm based on the preceding six numbers. There was a time when I knew how the algorithm worked and I did it a few times in the mess just to show off, but because I kept getting their suffix's right, they got pissed off and threw empty tinnies at me.

I wouldn't have minded if they were full ones.
