    Hi Bertrad,

    unfortunately I do not know the first one but the second one is:

    A1B - fully fit for any duty in flying crew.

    It was mentioned in the pat on this forum together with A3B - „combatant passenger (piloting excluded) what menas any duty on the board except pilot.

    Hope this helps a little

    Hi Bertrand,

    the combination of codes are as follows:

    A - represents the fitness to fly

    2 - Limited flying

    h - home service only

    b - Permanently unfit (as oppossed to 't' - Temporarily unfit to fly)

    So basically the person in question is allowed limited flying, at home only, and this status is permenant.

    The details can be found on pages 134/135 of this document:

    Bertrand/Amrit,

    Amrit has referred to an Australian (DVA) current summary of wartime medical classes. Unfortunately, the DVA has muddied the waters by lack of consistency in reproducing classes vs subscripts.

    KR& ACI par 1434 refers:

    A is for flying duties fitness B is for ground duties. There is no subscript b: that is a typo on the DVA's part. The normal subscripts (lower case) were t (temp unfit) h (Home service, broadly) and p (permanently unfit).

    In summary, using the glossary on the 211 Sqn website at:
    http://users.cyberone.com.au/clardo/glossary.html

    A1B: KR& ACI par 1434 medical class-fit for full flying duties (A1) and ground duties (B)
    A2B: -fit for limited flying duties, fit for ground duties
    A3B: -fit for flying as combatant passenger, fit for ground duties
    A4B: -fit for flying as non-combatant passenger, fit for ground duties
    AhBh: -fit for Home service only
    ApBp: -permanently unfit
    AtBt: -temporarily unfit for flying or ground duty [and probably to sick qtrs
    Of course you could be AtB - temp unift flying - and confined to the Adj
    office while so classified!]

    Amrit has misinterpreted the classes asked of: neither A2hBh nor A1B are permanent, and are subject to reassessment by medical board whenever required.

    A2hBh means fit for limited flying duties, fit for ground duties - Home service only, and A1B simply means fully fit, as above.

    With thanks to Don Clark.
