    Malcom, hi, what information is hidden under that 'mustering' redacted block. The rest of the form/sheet gives the basic movements/units/dates which I believed was all we needed really, so what info are we being deprived of on that form ?

    The mustering tells you what trade the subject was employed in. For the majority of ORs, this is normally difficult to nail down from a simple list of Stations / units.

    I have twice made representation to Cranwell for this to be retrospectively included in the release of service records. There is no reason why they can not release this information as a matter of routine.

    Ok, I had a look at one of the forms on the gallery here, a non-redacted one to understand. Under the central heading 'Mustering' 'Description and date of Effect' it will say : 'F mech E' and 'Fitt 2E' then over to the right,on the column which is normally redacted, 'Trade', it will say: FM.E and F2E. Are they both not his trade as a flight mechanic engines ? Why is the right hand column redacted and the central one that still tells us his trade, not ? Really doesn't make sense.

    You will have to ask RAF Cranwell to explain their redaction policy, I'm afraid.
