    Hi Kate(?)

    Others will confirm or correct, and add more, but I 'think':
    R.C. = Reception Centre
    101TW may be 10 ITW (Initial Training Wing)?
    SofTT = School of Technical Training.

    Hope these are correct and of help.

    (Thinks: I really must buy that book on RAF Support Units!)

    :-)

    RC = Recruits Centre

    No 4 RC was at Bridgnorth but may have had a detachment at No 8 SoTT at Weeton (3 Wing)

    3Wg Mellesham is 3 Wing, No 12 SoTT at Melksham

    4Wg, 8 SoTT was at Weeton

    10 ITW - 10 Initial Training Wing - Scarborough

    9 RC = Blackpool

    44 A/S = 44 Air School - Grahamstown, South Africa
