Does anyone know of a source which lists the army service numbers of the Labour Corps?

I am trying to edtablish when Harry Limbert joined the Labour Corps in WW1. His number was 12276.

Grateful for any ideas.

have you looked to see if his service papers exist ?

That number would have him joining in April/May 1917 and being attached to the Corps' 21 Company, which was formed from the 13th Leicesters.

Very many thanks, John. I will also pursue the source you mention.

Also thank you, Coldstreamer, for your suggestion, but no service paper survives, alas, only an attestation paper pre-the 2nd Boer War.
