Default Field force unit numbers?

Does anyone have access to a copy the Index to Field Force Unit numbers.

I am trying to search out a particular number.

The National Archives has a copy but it runs to 116 pages so will cost a fortune to get a copy.

Thanks.

I am not 100% certain it is a field force number but it has shown up on at least 3 examples of a piece of kit. The number is A839664.

Any help much appreciated.

It's not a field force number,wrong format. The largest number I'm aware of is 78124 allocated to 68 (EA) Field Battery EAA.

Thanks for looking. This is curious as the same number appears on at least 4 known examples of a Cogswell and Harrison push dagger. The number is hand applied with separate die stamps in the same manner that is found on the 30946 marked 1st pattern F-S knives. That number being a field force number. The push daggers date according to a letter written back in the 1970's to WW2.

So what does the number indicate?
