6th Argyll & Sutherland Highlanders - pre 1914 numbers

I've added to my post on the 6th Argyll & Sutherland Highlanders with additional information about army service numbers prior to 1914.

In common with some Territorial Force battalions in some other Scottish Regiments - see the Royal Scots for example - the 6th A&S Highlanders appears to have allocated blocks of numbers within its series to the eight different companies that were in existence up until the First World War. However, whereas differentiating between the number blocks is a relatively straightforward matter with the 8th Royal Scots for instance, with the 6th A&S Highlanders, it's an entirely different matter.

Also see my posts regarding army service numbers issued to men in the following Argyll & Sutherland Highlanders battalions:

1st & 2nd Argyll & Sutherland Highlanders 1881-1914
3rd (Special Reserve) & 4th (Extra Reserve) Battalion A&S Highlanders
5th Argyll & Sutherland Highlanders (TF)
7th Argyll & Sutherland Highlanders (TF)
8th Argyll & Sutherland Highlanders (TF)
9th Argyll & Sutherland Highlanders (TF)
