I am wondering if the service number of Private John William Brown, Northumberland Fusiliers, would indicate his Batallion?

According to his medal record card he enlisted on 30th September, 1915, and was given the service number 28/50.

28/50 does indicate that he enlisted into the 28th (Reserve) battalion but you need to check the medal roll sheet to find out which battalions he served overseas with, as 28th never left UK.
