    A chap was a part of the ground force in 1939.

    CWGC have him as - Flight Lieutenant (Pilot)

    London Gazette - Friday 25th January 1946
    Acting Flight Lieutenants - awarded Distinguished Flying Cross.

    ROYAL AIR FORCE VOLUNTEER RESERVE. GENERAL DUTIES BRANCH. Appointment to commission. As Pit. Offs. on prob. (emergency): — 23rd October 1943

    Does 'As Pit. Offs. on prob.' mean 'Pilot Officer on Probation'

    If it is PLT Offs then that is an abbreviation for Pilot Officer(thank you google:D)
