RFA men with same number

Is this normal ?

Yes. There are many sequences that start at 1. It becomes less likely with numbers of 5 figures, where there are 2 or 3 men with the same one. However, 6 figure numbers were unique.

Thanks David, the two men have numbers 96001

96001 was issued around August 29, 1914 at No. 1 Depot RFA, Newcastle, and again around April 27, 1915 at No. 6 Depot RFA, Glasgow.

Before that it would have been someone joining the Royal Artillery in early 1893.
