    Hello. First post on this forum. Thanks for the add!

    Is it possible to identify someone from a service number only? We are doing some genealogical research and only have these facts

    Private 92939 Royal Army Ordnance Corps (Motor Engineer)

    Can we identify who this number applies to?

    Thanks for any help

    WW1 or WW2??

    UK, Allied Prisoners of War, 1939-1945
    Name: George Henry Richard Pattison
    Nationality: B. CAPT
    Rank: (Captain (Army)
    Birth Date: 15 Sep 1908
    Birth Place: Langham, Ruthland, England
    Military Date: 1939-1945
    Military Place: Singapore
    Regiment: Royal Artillery
    Service Number: 92939

    Hes a problem though as he is a Capt and also RA - so can you expand on how/where the inforamtion is on your Pte in the RAOC - upload documents etc

    If its WW1 then you have other options

    Tom Eastwood Royal Garrison Artillery 92939

    Enoch Hadley 6th Oxford-Bucks LI, Royal Defence Corps 11552, 92939

    Charles Scott Durham Light Infantry, The King's (Liverpool) Regiment 326435, 92939

    Alfred Tough Royal Army Medical Corps 92939

    Arthur R Wadsworth King's Royal Rifle Corps, London Regiment, Royal Fusiliers 60641, GS/92939, GS/92939

    So the extra details and information becomes paramount

    sorry it's ww2. It's the only detail that appears on a birth certificate for 7 Jan 1943. A number a corps and trade but that's it

    I agree with TD, 92939 is Pattison, a T/Capt in the RA, missing 15/2/42. If you have a 1943 birth certificate, obviously not him so presumably a child, surely you have a name?

    Just to complicate things further the number if not an officer comes from the block allocated to The
    Royal Army Service Corps

    Would still like to see the birth cert, we have had other threads of a similar nature and found from the original document or a copy of it, another member has seen/read something differently and bam - theres your answer.

    hello everyone, thanks for the feedback and input. Sadly the certificate is not mine to release. I'm interested in the RASC link, not a million miles from the RAOC who inherited some of their roles and trades at this time.

    Birth and death certificates are a matter of public record and open to all. If you choose not to post a scan on the forum, that's up to you, but the chances of a successful interpretation are much reduced.
