    Thanks. Context is everything.

    And the Brits keep copying our place names, to make things worse.

    c.f.n. = Craftsman ( equivalent to Private in the REME)
    52nd l.a.a. rgt r.a w/shops r.e.m.e = Light Anti-Aircraft Regiment, Royal Artillery, Workshops , Royal Electrical & Mechanical Engineers
    c.m.f.= Central Mediterranean Forces

    In other works he fixed the guns, vehicles & equipment for 52 LAA Regt RA, in Italy.

    Light anti-aircraft guns would be 40mm Bofors.

    edit: see this thread on ww2talk, I know you are a member there too. post #4
    52nd Light A.A. REgiment R.A. (T.A)

    As mentioned in your other thread apply to the MoD for his service records .
    Don't try anywhere else only the MoD will have them.
    See link in post on your far east thread.
