    Default Abbreviation Help ERFE

    I have two abbreviations acronyms that have proved problematic to me, can anyone help please.
    The first dates from 1942 period is ERFE
    The second from the same time period is FA (AC) Malta
    The context is engaging with Overseas Aircraft Delivery Transits.
    Thank you.

    Quick answers like that do make me feel silly, why did I not see it myself, thank you.
    Anyone help with FA (AC) on Malta it appears that this was likely the stop over to Far East but to record it in this term might be significant..

    Hi Colin,

    FA (AC) I would decode as:

    F(A) Flying (Accident) in non-operational service why damage in dogfight for example would be F(B) Flying (Battle)

    and

    Damage Category - AC - For repair by contractor's working party
