  1. Roger Kirwin says:

    I note prefixes to enlisted mens’ serial numbers such as S/**** or 3/**** What do these prefixes denote? Thank you, Roger

    • Hi Roger,

      The S/ prefix usually means the person enlisted in a Service battalion. Occasionally, however, after 1916 they started renumbering some of the Regulars so it is not always so straightforward.

      The 3/ prefix was used for men joining the 3rd Battalion.

      • Roger Kirwin says:

        Thank you for the clarification regarding serial numbers. I had no idea that post ’16 renumbering occurred within the regiment. I assume the 4 digit series just maxed out which prompted the renumbering.
        I have a few uniform questions (WW1) Who could I ask via email at the museum?
        Thank you,
        Roger Kirwin (USA)
