Please, does anyone know the meaning of abbreviations MS1,nd AMD3, AG4C and SD3 that appear as signatories in an exchange of War Office/RFC correspondence relating to the medical condition of an RFC officer on his WO339 file?

 

TIA,

Errol

MS branches were branches of the Military Secretary that looked after officers careers in the round.  AG branches were Adjutant General branches that looked after the detail of officer postings.  SD3 was probably a branch of Director of Staff Duties and AMD was Army Medical Directorate - all branches that would have a say so in service/medical matters.
