    Default Ach (5)

    Has anyone come across a mustering of ACH (5) on a service record?

    It is possible that it refers to trade group V, but was wondering if some form of scale had been applied to aircrafthand by 1944 (the time of the entry on one of the service records that I am currently researching).

    Any thoughts would be appreciated.

    Regards

    ACH trade group remained static in Group V during the war years and was used for unskilled entrant levels.


    A few other trades were created into Group V eg Batmen, Barber, Armour Assistant etc.


    Was your man a transfer from another Group V trade or within eg ACH (u/t) to ACH?


    A re-muster into Group V from any other trade group would be a demotion in terms of pay.


    Post #4 of my reply to you on this thread gives a spreadsheet format for trades versus war year.

    Thanks for the feedback.

    He was ACH/UT RT Operator (but I don't think he completed his training) before he was remustered as ACH (5). It is the (5) that is puzzling me. It is clearly shown as (5) in two parts of the service record, so I have discounted (S) at this stage.
