    Hello

    I am researching my Great Granddad James Stewart Manning and was hoping someone could help me decipher a part on his record

    It says Passed Trade Test - Qualified Eng Art AIII - 01/09/1939

    is Eng. Art an Artillery engineer? that is just a wild guess as he went on to serve in the Royal Artillery

    Many Thanks to anyone that can help

    Regards
    Jim (named for James) Neal

    I'd go for Engineering Artificer.
    Was he associated with the Royal Army Ordnance Corps? Until the formation of the Royal Electrical and Mechanicsl Engineers in 1942, the Engineering Branch of the RAOC performed the maintenance role fof most of the Army.
