Army Form B.250 - Short Service Attestation 6&6

This particular attestation with the Royal Artillery dates to November 1908, although the form itself had been in circulation for a good deal longer.
The code at the top of the form shows that a print run of 40,000 of these forms was issued in April 1907 and that it was the second version of this form. I will try and dig out the version before this although the changes are probably minor.
H W V stands for Hazel Watson & Viney Ltd, the printers of this and many other British Army attestation papers . I have no idea what [No.13] or 8 58 17 refer to, does anybody else?
