    Hi Henk
    Smith,21, is registered at Holywell which suggests N3235. Moore,22, is registered in an area called Surrey Mid East which takes in the southern parts of London and beyond , places like Epsom, Cheam etc which lie on the edges of London and are now part of it, but in WW2 were administered by the adjacent County Councils.
    Regards
    Dick
