Thanks Jerry,

I am beginning to think that I may be over thinking this. The 369 may not represent the man's unit but might be the last three numerals of his Service Number.

I know that his name was Quigley and that H.Q. is an unlikely set of initials but it may be possible.

It also seems strange to find a uniform marked in this way but that might be explained by the fact that most of the laundry in the far east was done by dhobie wallahs. Even though the D.W.s had their own remarkable system of discretely marking laundry, the owner may have marked his own kit to be sure of getting it back.
