    • The Army and RAF used two distinct numbering systems which appear to have used the same numbers; thus men in different branches could have the same ID.

[Officer Training Corps], to be 2nd Lt. retaining his present seniority. 16 Sep 1940." (thanks to Peter Elliott, Royal Air Force Museum for explaining this bit of numerical confusion)
