    Default Abbreviation assistance - ARCW

    Having looked through the lists, I can't seem to find any mention of the above, can anyone help? I have it in the movements of a Navigator Sergeant in May 1943, the entry shows:

    Sgt J F SPENCER to ARCW 19/05/1943

    this is just over a month after joining the Squadron.


    Thanks in advance

    Hi Daz

    I suggest it might supposed to be ACRW - Air Crew Re-selection Wing, part of the Air Crew Disposal Wing

    Many thanks; would this indicate that he was going to be trained in another role or possibly removed from aircrew duties? I have no record of him returning to 78 Squadron.

    Regards

    Hi Daz

    That could well be the case.
