I recall that the Boys Battery Numbers all commenced with 1157 - did the War Office have a sense of humour in those days? Smile

My number for 1949 began with 222xxxxx. Some of the Royal Signal boys at Harrogate at the time only had 7 numbers beginning with 2549XXX. They date from around 1946/7 etc.

Brum,

Reg No beginning with 1917 looks like a Royal Engineer service number of the 7 digit variety. Also, it could be from the WW2 era. Been looking at Commonwealth War Grave Records which show quite a few RE fellows with numbers beginning with 1917, buried from this time in mostly the Royal Engineers although there were some anomolies such as a couple from Royal Pioneer Corps etc.
Also, the reallocated of Army Numbers was introduced in 1920 as per Army Order 338 (1920) and show the block allocation to the Royal Engineers as 1842000 -2303000.

Hope this info is of some use

That is I think where army numbers come in handy, lots of different ways, first four, last four, middle four or reverse of same, lots of configurations Very Happy
Do agree that is a bit spooky

I wouldn't mind betting that just about every ex or serving uses a configuration of their Number as a security code.
