WWI medals, R.A.M.C

Hi, I have some medals which are from a private in the R.A.M.C, they have his name, rank, but I thought his service number should also be on them, the only number is 8 any ideas what this means, as this is my only help for doing some research, thanks.

Re: WWI medals, R.A.M.C

Do you have any further info on your Corbett fella? A first name?

Maybe his military records might give a lead as to what the 8 means.
