    Default Aircraft Apprentice abbreviation L/A/A?

    A 1938 entry aircraft apprentice that I am researching on behalf of a friend appears on his RAF service record as L/A/A effective 18 Jul 39.

    I'm guessing that L/A/A = Leading Aircraft Apprentice, but would welcome confirmation or advice to the contrary.

    TIA,
    Errol

    Yes Errol - LAA was indeed Leading Aircraft Apprentice (One Stripe).
    Some years later when I was a Halton Brat a Leading Apprentice was in charge of a room of 12-18 (junior entry) apprentices,probably the same in 1939.
