    Just received WW2 records for family member. He was in the Canadian Forestry Corps

    We have been able to decipher a lot of the abbreviation but cannot find reference for NETD.

    He was sent to the UK (1942)

    the entry says

    SOS R5 CFC (Cat E) to NETD 5th April 1943

    the next entry says

    TOS posting from R5 CFC 6 April 1943

    So obviously he was transferred from one unit to another, we just cannot figure out what NETD stands for,

    Also the next entry

    P/leave WMa 5 days 21/16 April 1943

    so it looks like he took a leave ?personal or Medical assessment?

    anyone know what the WMa stands for?

    he was eventually struck off service from this unit a month later and sent home unfit so that makes us think it was a medical assessment.

    Any help appreciated...this mans history has been a constant source of mystery to his family...All waiting on this information.
