When the Territorial Force was re-numbered in 1917, the 25th Londons were allocated six digit numbers within the range 740001 to 760000.

However it would appear that the medal cards, where I obtained most of the soldier's numbers, do not always include the early numbers as most men would have certainly joined prior to 1917.
