    I could say it is a software glitch but in reality it is to keep you all on your toes. :)

    I wonder if it might be an idea to contact the National Archives and ask them if they have any idea as to what the abbreviations mean?

    If you go to their main site, there is a 'contact us' link at the bottom of the page and one of the options is a General Enquiry link, which takes you to a form to fill in. You can quote the catalogue ref for them to check.

    Might be worth a go?

    Best wishes
    Ann

    Thank you for the suggestion Ann.

    I'm still trying to find the rest of his service records. Normally, I would be a little sceptical about the additional information posted on the other forum but I recognised the poster's surname. I have always managed to confirm his research - so have confidence he sources all information. Besides, he posted the information contained in the document I have plus more. My first point of contact will be the National Archives to confirm they sent me the entire document. If all else fails I shall contact the poster.
