For background (skip this if easily bored) the details of marriage and dependants (if any) were collated so that if applicable separation allowance could be paid.  The details were collated on Army Form D 418A which was sent from the recruiting office to the pay system.  There was no doubt a set of "Instructions for the completion of AF D418A"  - if anyone has one about their person they might like to check what it tells the clerks about the procedure with childrens' birth certs although after 100 years it might be getting a bit tattered.  The subject of this thread was one of 136,811 men volunteering in October 1914. :)

My father never had to show his birth certificate prior to starting national service in the late 1940s. I know he never saw it until 1985.

I wonder if NHS no.s may have been used?

The NHS didn't start until 1948 so nu NHS numbers in either war.

He would have had his civilian National Identity card from 1939 until at least 1952 as 'proof' of name, address, and date of birth.  (They were pretty pointless as ID because they didn't include a photo, but that was how it was back then!)

It would be nice to hear what the OP thinks given she has visited the site since my suggestion.
