Bag with A.I.F. insignia


I was wondering if someone could give me some information regarding an old bag I have that has the [sign in to see URL]. insignia on it. Under the [sign in to see URL]. insignia is a number (1913) I was wondering if this dictated a soldiers field number. Also ([sign in to see URL].) is stamped in with a picture of the crown with (Int.3) If 1913 dictates a soldiers number than I've located a bag that belonged to Nathan Reeve who was part of the 14th Field Artillery Brigade in 1916. Any help with these insignias would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Be careful making assumptions with WWI numbers,,, they were regimental or Battalion numbers not AIF numbers that were used in WWII. THe same number could have been used in every unit in the AIF for a different man.

The same number could also be recycled for different men within the same battalion. Many more people passed through a battalion in the war than numbers used.
