Can anyone please help with information on what and where 2729Sqdn was between Early Aug 1941 until Oct 1943.

Also what are RS and PDC units

Also can anyone please help with information on what entries T.F SGT (Found under Promotions, reclassifications, reversions area on service docs) and U/T A.6 11/10/43 (I Assume that the date is the last bit).

Thanks for your help guys

Hi Buz

P.D.C. stands for Personnel Despatch Centre

R & S Unit is Repair and Salvage Unit

No.2729 Squadron, an R.A.F. Regiment anti-aircraft artillery squadron based in England 'OR'

No.2729 Squadron of the Royal Air Force Regiment assigned overseas.

Which ever one it is, it did not exist by October 1944. I'll see what else I can dig up for you Buz.

Cheers...Chris
