Hi Folks,
I have a question regarding RNVR service numbers. For example, AB Finlayson, RNVR, was lost with HMS Hood. His service number began with "P/ESD/X", where P meant Portsmouth, and X meant new pay code. What did ESD mean? Other RNVR ratings had designations such as CD, UD, LD, TD, and I guess D stood for depot. Could anyone offer help?

The RNR & RNVR used to be cut into divisions.
Huge guess here - if the D stood for Division could
L be London
C be Chatham
and so forth? Ulster? Tyne?
