    Default J. / R. Service Numbers

    Could anyone clarify if the J. and R. Service Numbers (Canadian) were allocated in the same way as the RAF Service No. / Commission Numbers.

    If so, which was allocated first J or R?

    Regards

    Pete

    R = airmen

    J = Officer (wartime I think only )

    R could be commissioned and would
    Get J

    Not sure All J were R before

    C = pre war perm officers
