This appears to be the entry for the Lamond family in Whitefriars Street, Perth.

I've noticed similar annotations to names in electoral registers in the immediate post-war years, and they appear to be there when there are two people of exactly the same name in the same household. I think I've seen both service numbers (for ex-servicemen) and 1939 Register numbers (for others, presumably).

I don't know anything about Scottish 1939 Register numbers, and the length of this one might indicate that it's a service number. If it is, then it would help considerably in discovering more about the chap's war service.
Researching among others:
Bartle, Bilton, Campbell, Craven, Emmott, Harcourt, Hirst, Kellet(t), Kennedy,
Meaburn, Mennile/Meynell, Metcalf(e), Palliser, Robinson, Rutter, Shipley, Stow, Wilkinson

From newspaper articles in 1982 when Michael Fagan entered Buckingham Palace, I'd say that was easier than trying to get a copy of a 1939 (Register) entry in Scotland  ;D
