Re: Need to know

Gwynn/ Rod, thanks for filling several gaps in my memory.
The big one for me was the Paybook short names "AB64 parts 1 and 2". I was calling them "PB parts 1 and 2.". I felt it wasn't right and was hoping somebody would provide the right name - thanks.
Either you or Rod mentioned National Service discharge papers (which was the focal point of my "Need to Know") . . . I have absolutely no memory of receiving discharge papers.
I thought they simply stamped our AB 64 and we walked through the gates and out.
Not completely free, as I was assigned AER (Army Emergency Reserve) for 3 1/2 years - three annual camps. I think I preferred that to the alternative - TA (Territorials). I also think we kept our uniform for the camps.
