ASC numbering again

Recommended Posts

Chris_Baker

This is a subject that keeps coming up, so my apologies.

Does anyone know what a prefix of WT4 means, in the numbering of a soldier of the Army Service Corps?

Not necessarily the answer but might help:-

W - RA, RE, ASC prefix denotes Welshman.

T4 - ASC prefix Auxillary Horse Transport (331 Coy)

So if you add them together ?

Give that man a cigar! The chap I'm looking at was in 330 Company. I will now try to remember that W=Welsh!

I am a bit embarassed to say so, but can someone direct me to a neat concise list of the various ASC abbreviations? As a newcomer to this site, I realise that it has probably been done before. However, my grandfather's medal group (QSA,KSA,trio) features the following number on the trio: T1SR-625.

As I don't collect Service Corps medals, I would like to be a bit better informed on the numbering system. Perhaps on some web site there must be a master list?

I've got the service number prefix list from 'Army Service Corps 1902-1918 as a Word document. If you send me your email address I'll send a copy off list.
