    Default More service records interpretations

    I'm attempting to help a colleague decipher a relatives service record but not with much luck. An explanation of the following would be appreciated.

    3 Depot Padgate
    2 Wing Padgate
    No.1 Wing Yatesbury
    1 Wg S Massie??
    WCAD Uxbridge
    106 P R C

    If it helps the record relates to a Cook/Butcher

    Regards
    Peter.

    Hi Peter,

    As always, I will defer to the real experts, but how about these from a few searches, including some on the old forum's archives.

    3 Depot Padgate
    AIR 29/497 No. 3 Recruit Centre, RAF Padgate 1939 Apr.-1950 Feb.

    2 Wing Padgate
    Located at RAF Padgate, Cheshire

    No.1 Wing Yatesbury
    RAF Yatesbury, Wiltshire

    1 Wg S Massie??
    This one stumps me. It's clearly No. 1 Wing but I can't place S(outh?) Massie (Massingham?)

    WCAD Uxbridge
    War Casualty Accounts Depot, RAF Uxbridge

    106 P R C
    AIR 29/1102 No. 106 Personnel Reception Centre, Cosford 1945 May-1948 Aug.

    Many thanks for the reply, a great help. My knowledge is limited when it comes to service records. Might be adding a few more requests for info soon.

    Regards
    Peter.

    Hi again Peter,

    From a later thread, here's the answer to S. Massie: Saughall Massie (Cheshire) where No 5 Recruits Centre and No 4 Group Pool were based.
