Chums - are you aware of a list or link of ASC prefixes? so, I know M2 before the service number is electrician for example. As I am looking at ASC men serving alongside 293 siege battery in Italy it would be hellpful to build up that picture of trades and skills.

Seasons greetings

There have been several previous threads on the subject of ASC prefixes.

A forum search should bring them up.

 

This is a Good starting point:

Hi Seany, unfortunately this is a misconception, all Mechanical Transport ASC men had M2 prefixes regardless of trade from November 1914 to 1916 with the exception of DM2 which was introduced for Drivers in April 1915.

Thank you all - Diolch yn fawr - should have looked on the LLT or done a search, but hey its Boxing Day and I'm feeling lazy and I have to say uncomfortably stuffed.

I may be also slightly tired and emotional so having messed up the prrevious post can I just say again - thank you and Diolch Yn Fawr for the replies.
