    Default Meaning of T.O.S. and S.O.S. in RCAF service record?

    Going though a R.C.A.F. service record (Form R44(B)) I am not sure about the meaning of T.O.S. and S.O.S. in relation to postings. Could anyone advice me?

    Regards

    TOS means Taken On Strength and SOS means Struck Off Strength. A purely administrative remark siginfying when an individual officialy became the responsibility of that unit or ceased to be their responsibility.

    Thank you very much. I was in the "area", but could not get the words right.
