Hi, I found an old Great Coat in a barn the other day with an army number hand written inside it. The number started 1142++++ can anyone give me a rough time period of when this number was in service.

Cheers

An 8 digit number starting 1142 would have been allocated to a soldier in the Royal Artillery from the batch 11000001 - 11500000.

A 7 digit number starting 1142 would have been allocated to a soldier in the Royal Artillery from the batch 721001 - 1842000
