Numbers of that length probably date from the 1920s or 1930s.  Earlier numbers were issued by regiments and were of up to five digits but army-wide numbers came in during the early 1920s.
Have you any other clues?

Welcme to Rootschat with a needle in a haystack question!  You should be aware that WW2 service records are not on line so there is no one click that would give the answer.

However. the number is in the block allocated to the General Service Corps.  People did not normally spend much time in that corps, moving on to specialist appointments in other regiments/corps in the main so the bearer may have been anywhere.
Following up ainslie's thought, the block went 14200001 to 1500000 so 30s perhaps and more clues might help

Hi     

WELCOME to  Rootschat.     

Another thing to mention is that the person you are looking for just maybe stilll living.     
Rootschat has a "no living" policy.
Would you explain exactly what your final target is and what info you have to initiate the requested search?

In passing, I see that you were onine around 19.00(UK), yet your post was placed at 13.14 .     
May I ask why you didn't reply to the posts already placed on your thread?     


We can really only help if you help us to help you . . . . . . .
