    There is a stamp on my Dad's service record which reads No. 11 C.M.D. & D.O.U Aldershot. What does this mean please?

    Also what does RX NAH written in his record mean.

    Thanks

    Thanks for your response TD but I could not find it in the linked document.

    AF with the RX NAH wording attached. I understand all on it except that,

    My opinion on the RXNAH is that its the code used/attached to all men and materials departing on a ship, something akin to a flight code for checking in, to ensure all the men & equipment for Ship 'X' are put on board. Its dated 28 Jan 1945, and the next line is Embarked 29 Jan 1945.

    As for the others - not sure
    C M D = ........ Depot
    D O U = ..........Unit

    No. 11 C.M.D. & D.C.U = No. 11 Combined Military Dispersal & Demobilisation Camp Unit - based at Aldershot, where soldiers went through their discharge and demob process.
