I have obtained the army service records for my father (he did his national service between 1946 and 1948.)
Not unexpectedly, the documents contain a wealth of abbreviations (or possibly acronyms) and Army terms and reference numbers. Rather than googling for each and every one and hoping to strike lucky, or asking for an expert to interpret the whole document, is there a comprehensive reference source I can use to interpret the material myself (and maybe return here with any really tricky points).
If it matters, the documents I have are
- Army form B.102
- Army form B.103-1 (Service and Casualty Form)
- Notification of Impending Release PART I
- Army Form B.200d (second Revise.) (Territorial Army Record of Service Paper)
