    Default Abbreviations on Personnel file

    I am trying to figure out what the letters on a record of promotion mean for an RCAF pilot. The heading reads "Rank, Branch and Category" and the notation is:

    11 May 1944 SR (GL) Pilot

    I believe the SR stands for special reserve but what does GL mean?

    At this point in his career, he was at 640 Sqn and had only a month to live. His Halifax was shot down over Geel on 13 Jun 1944.

    Dave,

    I suspect that it means Special Reserve (General List), but one of our RCAF experts may be able to confirm (or deny).
