Title: RM Service certificate abbreviations
Post by: spooks1959 on 21 February 2016 01:53:44 PM
Can anyone identify the two Royal Marine ‘Groups’ mentioned in this service certificate? I attach a photo of the relevant section. It appears to record the following postings:

HBL (RM Bde)
Depot R.M.  Deal            
HBL R.M. Commando
HBL R.M. Eng Group
HBL R.M. S.S. Group
Depart from Lympstone

HBL = Home Based Ledger, i.e. miscellaneous personnel

Thanks
