Understanding the WW1 medal codes

Recommended Posts

Hi,  This may have been already discussed on here at some point but I was wondering what the numbers and letter before the service number on WW1 medals mean.  

for example DM2/ then the service number or 6/ then the service number,  I haven't seen many medals with number and letter before the service number, I had some WW1 naval medal once which had lettering on but was after the service number and meant what they were in the navy. is this the same thing?
