    OR is Other Rank.

    I just found 139 diaries for Port Workshops. Do you have a actual unit?

    If the Port Workshop was in Italy - wouldn't there be other documentation for Italy detailing the workshop's requirements?

    I meant the dilution of staff documents. As they have been issued for port workshops in Africa and the Midle East, I was querying the idea of there being a dilution document for port workshops in Italy.

    Was 19 P/W in the M.E? It just seemed you would look at the document relevant to the location, which - if in Italy - may have more relevant info.

    Perhaps I have misunderstood your initial question though.
