I know, not a word often heard from my lips, but you see Google has confused me and Bing has let me down .. so I turn to you wise worldly fellows for some intelligent assistance [is that enough sugar soaping grovelling coz my knees are hurting and this sweetness is making me nauseaous].
Trawling through a mountain of World War 2 papers and so forth trying to find what might be deemed as a ‘personnel number’ or ‘Civilian Contractor Number’ or a “US Army Number’ ….. numbers everywhere. Why this fixation with numbers there are 26 letters and only 10 numbers, you’re gonna run out quickly!! I digress, I am wondering whether you know, or you know a group or organisation who might know, what a particular numerical format might relate to.
I have things like CWS-[a number to do with grade] and I have an enticing #NNNNN [symbol and five digits, sometimes prefixed with AGO], and also a AG-NNN[again N being a number]. All very mind boggling, I am almost sure the first set it to do with rank and grade or a work acronym but the other two are more intriguing.
Any thoughts be much appreciated.
