    It appears from reading various forums that ww1 tags were SC for church of scotland and PRES covered church of scotland in ww2 so im still none the wiser
    Here are two tags showing P and Presb weren't restricted to use in WWII.

    sorry to hijack the thread, picked up this tag locally and assumed it to be ww2, was puzzled by lack of rank and regiment, the first number 1 of the serial number seems to be the wrong way round, also stamped on reverse with the initals FF. the only numbers in that sequence i can find are 100701 to 102700 Oct-Nov 1917 RFC - civilians any thoughts ??,
    cheers, John.

    John mate, I think you might be right about it being post WWI.

    Under RAF records the only man with that number is Frank Clark, a joiner who attested in 1917, but the army number search brings up the RASC
    http://www.corpsofmilitarypolice.org...r?query=100819

    Now, if RAF it should have RAF stamped on the tag or at least that's what I'd have thought. From 1920 (I think?) the army stopped adding the unit to tags so, if it belonged to F. Ford RASC then it's possible the details fit for a between the wars or WWII army ID tag.

    John, if you click on this link https://www.gov.uk/government/public...-december-2014 and scroll half way down the page to attachment 6, open it and search for the number on your ID tag you’ll see it confirms F Ford was RASC.
