    I am just going through my previous RM medical notes to submit to the AFCO. Included is a comment from a Doctor from Lympstone saying 'He should be considered as PO(R)'. Anyone have a clue what that stands for ? it could be a zero rather than a O

    Thanks

    Hmmn, stumped on that one.

    Doctor's have their own language -
    NFN=Normal For Norfolk (nuts)
    TTFO= Told to foxtrot oscar
    P2= Fit
    P8= Unfit
    S8= Unfit Psychiatric

    My guess? Most likely P8 (Return) in other words unfit now, but can return when fit

    Thank you Ninja, within the context your guess would make a lot of sense.

    Further to my question, sorry if seems like a stupid one. As a civvy how should I be addressing military personnel at the AFCO? would it be inapropriate to be using their rank ?

    My favourite is PFO = pi$$ed, fell over.
    One of A & E's most common acronyms on a Saturday night. Apparently. :)

    I wouldn't worry about it before joining, they'll introduce themselves in the manner they want to be addressed. If they say "I'm Sergeant Smith", call them Sergeant. If they say "I'm Smudge Smith", call them Smudge.
