WRNS WW2 Service Record


Can anyone help with these abbreviations on my Great Aunts service record? I am writing some background info for her daughter.

8 Jul 42 Wren (?) Std (O). I know she was an Officer's Steward, but does what is in the brackets mean something?

8 Jul 43 Wren H.G?.R. (might be H.a.R or H.Q.R?) first aniversary of service, what could this mean?

28 Aug 44 Does the $ sign mean anything. This was just before she went to France.

Any help gratefully received.
Welcome to Rum Ration, HMAFV!

There are some really good historians on Rum Ration who will no doubt offer very informative replies later.

I've glanced at this quickly; the one thing I can say is that I think that the letter after the word Wren on the first line is a "G".

Re the rank listing on the service record:

The top one is Officers Steward. The 2nd one is Quarters Rating (maintained/upkeep of the WRNS quarters).

Hope this helps.
