Jimsigs or Gordon, have found what I believe to be my fathers army number 720499 and think he joined under The London Regiment, don't know if these numbers were the early ones of what we have now or as was said earlier our numbers started later

PostSubject: Re: Army numbers   29/1/2012, 23:58

Les,

I had a quick look up at army numbers and the number you mention - 720499 came under the heading of :

Leinster Regiment 7177001 - 7211000 (Disbanded 1922)

Seems strange, unless he was first world war soldier.

The London Regiment was a territorial regiment in the 1st world war and are associated with the East Surreys

and their numbers were in the range of


  • East Surrey Regiment 6132001 - 6188000

That's about the sum total of my two pennyworth Les.

You hit it right there Jimsigs, he joined sometime in 1915 and I think he signed on in Peckham, lost his leg around 1916

My Father joined the RASC about 1920, his No was S/13160. He was a member of the original BAOR based in Wiesbaden in the mid 20's.

BobG,

My late Dad must have been out there in Germany just a little shade after your Dad's visit. My Dad's regiment - The Dorsets were station at Bad Schwalbach, just north of Wiesbaden. They left in 1929 and return to the UK. Incidentally, my Dad's number was from the Dorsets and he carried it over into the Corps of Military police and later into the Worcestershire Regiment. His number only changed when he was commissioned in around 1942.

Army numbers seem to have fizzled out. Question, I know that you can tell from a soldier's number under the old system which regiment/corps he belonged to, but what about officer's numbers. Are they just cummalative or are they issue by corps/regiment I wonder.
