    Default Codes in airmen files

    Hello,

    I do not remember if this subject has been already talked here, in a file of a pilot , in his different posting,
    there are colonn of Unit, Duty, Date of Effect, Acting Rank and Authority.
    In this last colonn: Authority, it seems that they used code like:
    16/3048/44
    16/3793/44
    16/4694/44
    etc ...
    I suppose that 44 refer for 1944.
    Any idea to deciphere the others ?? Or is there a key somewhere of the used codes ??

    Hi Alain

    I believe they simply refer to the File Number (16) and the item in that file (3048 etc) for 1944 (44)
