    Default R&SU

    Can anyone please confirm the above AM Form 78 abbreviation related to aircraft at the end of their service lives. Repair and Salvage Unit perhaps?
    Thanks:

    R&SU is Repair and Salvage Unit but did not necessarily apply to a/c only at the end of their lives. Many a/c were repaired but some were salvaged. Depending on the stage of the war towards the end of hostilities some a/c expected to be repaired may have been subsequently salvaged or written off.
