What is needed when we get Q & R documents, discharge sheets etc, is a copy of Staff Duties in the Field, All of the official niggling abbreviations will be in this publication.

The Jocks with a sense of humour- Hullo Wully how come yer breeks have got a shiny ass? They were convinced I sat down all day drinking coffee and smoking the local tobacco - Erinmore! A copy of King's Regulations for the Army 1940 would throw a lot of light on the subject.
