Medal trio inscription question

Recommended Posts

WilliamRev

I have a 14/15 star medal trio awarded to "J.S.Bibby A.B.R.N." - no rank is given: I'm guessing that this is "something (Auxilliary?) - something - Royal Navy", but perhaps someone would be kind enough to put me out of my misery, (in the nicest possible way, of course::lol:lol:).

Thanks, William

Two things for similar future enquiries I always find of immense use on the NA site:

Unit abbreviations:

Rank abbreviations:
