    Default Meaning of 'AMB' on service record

    The service record of an AC2 (Met) includes the following entries

    21/6/41 - 70 OTU (this would have been Ismailia)
    AMB(a
    18/6/42 - 70 OTU

    I can't for the life of me work out what the AMB(a means - can anyone help please?

    Hello,

    Pure speculation - but given the dates and the locale - possibly, "Annual Medical Board" - a?.

    Thank you both; I think of the two suggestions Malcolm's is more likely except his 'career' seemed to have stalled in that he enlisted as an AC2 in August 1940 but was not promoted to LAC until August 1943 - my implication being he didn't impress his superiors.

    His service record also includes an entry of (I think) 2W 3SS from 27/9/40 to 22/3/41, which defeats me as much as the AMB.

    Thank you, Ross; that rather puts the cat amongst the pigeons. Seems as though he trained in signals before transferring to meteorology.
