(Also posted in the Fleet Air Arm forum.) I've a question for the old & the bold - and any historians amongst you. I'm making a presentation piece for an old boy who was in Fleet Air Arm in the forties. His rank/appt was Leading Air Mechanic (L Electrical) - was the rank abbreviation at the time AM(L) or LAM (L) or something entirely different ? I've been told by a skimmer mate that I should have "WAFU cnut" engraved on it, he said any WU worth his salt would take it as a compliment. Not exactly sure that this octogenarian would appreciate it somehow... Could anyone tell me the correct abbreviation please ?
