Square Number????????

I was at my local remembrance parade on Sunday and to my delight there was an old and bold Royal there who marched with me. He served in the late Forties and asked if I had a square number. I have been in the Corps for 14yrs now but have never heard this saying. Can any of the old and bold amongst you shed any light on this saying?????????


Cheers

Could be asking for your ship's book number. The last 4 digits of your official No. if my memory severs right. The book number was noted on forms as your SQ No. Hope that helps?
