    Default FAA - ranks and trades question

    I know this is a bit off the RAF topic, but I am researching a Dane serving in the Fleet Air Arm. In a document he writes the following about his service:

    "P/O RM (AW)P.O. from July 1944 as
    L/RM from July 1943 to July 1944
    O/TEL from 29 Sep 1942 to July 1943"

    I guess this translates into

    Petty Officer Radio Mechanic [?] (Air Wireless) [?]
    Jul 44 - ; Petty Officer
    Jul 43 - Jul 44; Leading Rate, Mechanic
    29 Sep 42 - Jul 43; Ordinary Telegraphist

    Does anyone have a better idea of these abbreviations? I have been using this source

    I suspect O is short for Ordinary Seaman, but otherwise it seems pretty good.
