    Default 904 AB Squadron, Hook

    Does anyone have any information about this unit in 1939?

    It's an Auxiliary Balloon Squadron. Based at Mansfield Road, Hook, Surbiton, Surrey, not Hook in Hampshire.

    Thank you Simon. I'm a newcomer to this site trying to research my dad's service history. I've got his Service record but as you can imagine, there are a number of units and abbreviations that don't mean much to me. May I send you a copy so that you could decipher it for me?

    You're welcome Ian, and good to have you on the Forum.

    To be honest deciphering Service Records is not my area of expertise - actually I'm not sure what my area of expertise is, or indeed if I have one!

    If you post the unitsand abbreviations you're stuck with on here, I'm absolutely sure those more knowledgeable than me will be able to help.

    Regards

    Simon
