Does anyone know what this means? It is a blood type given to some Australian soldiers about 60 years ago.

in 1910 Moss numbered blood types from 1 to 4. (Often written as Roman numerals)

1 is AB
2 is A
3 is B
4 is O

Dog tags of Australian soldiers apparently used both systems for a while.

The number system is confusing because Jansky also used numbers to identify blood type but the meanings of 1 and 4 are reversed in the two systems. Jansky system was primarily used in Russia and Eastern Europe.

A 2 is also confusing since there is an A2 blood subtype.

I found this link, it looks like it is a type O but without the rh factor.

Those are all very interesting replies, but it this case it turns out that human error was in play: I was shown the dog tags yesterday, and they were clearly stamped O POS (1947). so all I can think is that this gentleman once saw on a medical record elsewhere O + and he misread the + as a 4. So no problem. thanks to all of you who replied.
