Is anybody familiar with this abbreviation 'D.T.S.N.R.'?
« on: July 24, 2009, 10:20:54 PM »
Is anybody familiar with this abbreviation 'D.T.S.N.R.'? It is something to do with being discharged/demobbed and is on my great grandfathers records after he ended up at the RM Depot, Deal. It reminds me of SNLR ('services no longer required' for you civvies!).

Many thanks,
John
In memory of my great grandfather: 9671 Pte Joseph Percy Rothwell, Manchester Regiment (Boer War, Mons, Le Cateau, PoW, Home Guard) & his father, 1090 Pte Joseph Rothwell, 12th (The Prince of Wales's) Royal Regiment of Lancers 1871-1882.

Isn't this the RM equivalent of SNLR?  Due to Services Not Required.
