dfuller52 Posted 9 November , 2013 Share Posted 9 November , 2013 Hi All, Usually, I can figure abbreviations out, but I am having trouble with these ones, for various reasons. If anyone can help sort them out, I'd appreciate it. All these references are 1918. 55 Training Squadron - I can't seem to find this one, except as a precursor to 55 Sqn. But my man was assigned to 55 TS in 1918, when the squadron was already at the front, so I am puzzled on this one. No. 2 School of Flying & Gunnery - I have seen two listed, one at Markse and one at Turnberry. Which is the more likely for a Canadian airman in Jun 1918? EF 2 Sqn AFC - Again, I see that this could be No. 2 Sqn Australian Flying Corp, but I am puzzled about why a Canadian would be assigned to it, and what the EF means? Field Hospital 38L - location? BEF Reserve Division - why would this notation be on an airman's file. Is it just the authority? The notation has him going from BEF to the Reserve Division 41 Sqn RD - Does this just mean that he is still nominally attached to 41 Sqn, but because he is ill, he is administratively assigned to the Reserve Division? 29 LC Sqn - what does the LC stand for? (This move was cancelled when he went back into hospital) thanks Here's a copy of the file Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
