    Interesting Officer! Clearly, from his Birth Reg date and Enlistment date, he could not have done a Uni BSc course before Enlistment. Whether the 'MA' was studied for, or came like an Oxford 'MA', will depend on where he did his BSc. And to have post-nominals of 'FRAS' - Fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society - is indeed very strange. The LG doesn't show the whole story. Be interested to see what it was!!

    Pavel, Hi,
    Brilliant. It is always nice to see the outcome of an initial enquiry - even if it is (in some cases) many months/years later!
    Good stuff
