Help with AIR79 abbreviations

Recommended Posts

Seeking assistance with abbreviations for this RNAS/RAF man's AIR79, in particular the meaning of 'MTD', and 'H&C Works' which also appears in full on line 4 but is not fully legible. Also whereabouts was the 'Works' located? He was a Chief Mechanic and Driver (Motor Boat) as at 1 Apr 18.

 

TIA,

Errol

Could the MTD be Mechanical Transport Depot, presumably at RNAS Sandbanks?

 

Regards

There was a Training Detachment at North Haven, Sandbanks, Poole, in 1918 and so possibly 'Marine Training Detachment'

 

RNAS Sandbanks was not commissioned until 1940
