    Default "Based at ICU Nassau"

    Hi I would like to ask if anybody can help me to solve another "abbreviation" mystery.

    In the record is written "Based at ICU Nassau".

    Have anybody idea what this abbreviation means? I tried all available books and list of abbreviations but no luck...

    He was member of RAF Ferry/Transport Command so I think it can be some kind of I..... Conversion Unit?

    I know that there were based only:

    No. 7 Aircraft Preparation Unit
    No. 7 Ferry Unit

    TIA

    TCICU stood for Transport Command Initial Conversion Unit but I cannot find any info on the unit(s) or where it/they were based.
