    Default RAF WW2 Service Record Info

    I have a copy of my late father's RAF WW2 service record and need some help in identifying some of the entries.

    In "Reason" Column : Letters H (think this may be "holding"), HH, X and F. The X is shown adjacent to Unit entered as 21 A.D. which corrresponds with his service in France.
    Reference is made to "No. 2 Mobile High Speed W/T Unit" - any info on this unit would be appreciated.

    Later service is with 80 (s) Wing and then a unit designated "2 Signals Depot" at locations Symington, Lerwick and Aberdeen (twice). Any info on the latter unit would be appreciated.
