    Default Abbreviation

    Can anyone please translate the abbreviation 1A CRC? This was the first posting for the man I am researching so it was possibly a reception centre. I'm familiar with the ACRC abbreviation but this one I can't trace. Any suggestions to what it means and a possible location will be much appreciated.
    Thanks

    Terry,

    As it's his first posting is it possible whomever wrote it down meant to put No. 1 ACRC?

    Just a thought.

    I agree with Dave that it is likely to be No. 1 ACRC, which was RAF Regents Park.

    The numbering is confusing as the ACRC (Regents Park) which opened in July 1941 became No. 3 ACRC in 1943 when the second ACRC (No. 6 ACRC) was opened in Scarborough. However, the service records that I have seen show either ACRC or 1 ACRC.

    Regards

    Thanks Pete and Dave it makes sense that it should have been 1 ACRC. Another abbreviation I am struggling with is Sgt. Clk/EA (C). Prior to this promotion he had been at the School of Administrative Trades at RAF Kirkham. Could Clk be a clerk? Any suggestions on the EA (P) would be appreciated

    Clerk, EA = Clerk, Equipment and Accounting

    I am assuming that he went on to aircrew training (otherwise the ACRC suggestion would be incorrect)
