I hunted around and then put into Google WW II "Dog Tags". Could METH be
simply his religion?
And found this.
Thread: "Dog Tags" - Identification of Religion
Default "Dog Tags" - Identification of Religion
I am having some interest to read the WW II "Dog Tags". We have C of E =
Church of England or CE for same.
We have OD = Other Denomination introduced in 1942.
But what about Church of Scotland, could it be CS? Then we have the Roman

I would like to learn more about the many letters and the connection to the
religions of Commonwealth airmen.

relative in the Family Tree.
