Remembered Today:

Identification of women's service abbreviations

Michael Pegum

Recommended Posts

A WW I roll of honour in St. Peter’s Church, Bandon, Co. Cork, has the names of 14 women who served in various services. Of these, V.A.D. and Q.M.W.A.A.C. (a confusion of the titles of the Women’s Army Auxiliary Corps and Queen Mary’s Army Auxiliary Corps) I know, but can anyone explain M. of P., M.W. and M. of M.?

(C.Derg may mean Castlederg, a town in Co. Antrim, but I don’t think that helps.)

Many thanks. I had misread 'C.Dept'.

These answers are very convincing, and I will incorporate them on the website. Once again, the Forum has proved its worth.
