AE ART Co = Area Employment Artizan Company - part of the Labour Corps, but doing slightly more skilled work on the lines of communication

AOC = Army Ordnance Corps

Cent Wrks T.C. - possibly Central Works, Tank Corps??

COSNO

(2077) DS

DW WRR = Duke of Wellington's, West Riding Regiment

RMA (HMS Agincourt) = Royal Marine Artillery, serving aboard HMS Agincourt

RME = Royal Marine Engineers

ROR Lancs - suspect this is a typo for KOR Lancs ie King's Own (Royal Lancaster Regiment)

SBR = Sick Berth Reserve (ie St John's or Red Cross men who volunteered as Sick Berth Attendants in the Royal Navy essentially)

YRBA
