The first digits of a WWII British identity disc

Danny P

Recommended Posts

Everytime I like to buy a WWII British identity disc I don't know what to do because I really don't know to which unit the first digits of the serial number is assigned to. For instance, to which unit belongs serial number 7901260? Is there a list of digits and units which will help me when to buy one?

Many thanks,

I am now looking for the number block allocation for the 3rd division, 1st battalion south lancashire regiment which is not mentioned in the link in previous post.

Can anybody help please?



 I've only just spotted this.

S Lan R have been listed under Prince of Wales's Volunteers - They were originally formed as "Prince of Wales's Volunteers (South Lancashire Regiment).

The Prince of Wales' Volunteers 3644001 - 3701000

It's not possible to ascertain battalion or the division to which they were allocated.
