    I'm completely stumped with the abbreviation 'RFWOA'.

    My Great Uncle was with a R.A. searchlight battery on home service, then anti-aircraft gunnery and in January 1943 was sent to West Africa where his records include the reference 'Draft Service RFWOA'.

    Has anyone any clues?

    These are recognition codes for travelling troops and don't actually stand for anything. Here is a previous thread where this was discussed:
