From TOCH!:

factory numbers/serials

This is no different from Hawkers during WWII. All of their Hurricanes were constructed with a 41H/xxxxx. 41H/ was the Hurricane and the five digit number the Hawker
construction number which was only for Hawkers own use. The aircraft were then issued with the serial by the MOD/RAF etc.

I believe the practice still continues today with British Aerospace (BAe) with the Hawk etc.

Seem common sense
