Read this: TF renumbering 1917

It's from the Long, Long Trail and will indicate that if a man was a member of the Territorial Force in 1917, he would be given a new number.

Blocks of numbers were allocated to brigades with which to re-number their men.

These blocks can be found here: TF numbers and brigades

Short answer - yes you can, for post 1917 members of the TF.

Thanks Simon two fascinating links, the way I read it, my man with one service no. 252629 would have been a regular, not going overseas before late 1917.

The distiction between regular and TF. my man would have been 18 in 1916, is it more likely that he responded to being called-up rather than volunteering? Mike.
