    Default RAF Ground Crew Trades 1940

    I'm trying to find the trades of some 1940 ground crew, having trouble with some abbreviations !

    C&B
    D/Pet or D/P

    TIA

    Hi Mark

    D/Pet is Drriver - Petrol

    Could C & B be C & R or C/R? This would be Carpenter Rigger

    Hi,

    Thanks Errol & Malcolm

    C&B 750910 AC2 K.W ROSE HQ BAFF Survivor HMT Lancastria 17/6/40

    Maybe Rose was a butcher pre war and enlisted in the RAFVR (1939) and took his trade with him ?
