I have another Service Book decryption question. A veteran related to me that this line indicated that Charles Tucker was docked $1.40 of his pay for reasons unknown but I can't make out the first word on this line,

Pete? Pate? Rate? of Pay $1.40



Curious to know what that first word is, any thoughts?

Think it's 'Rate' and indicates he got a raise. Believe that's the trained soldier rate, no bump for a specialized trade.

Okay, so the fellow who read it as the soldier was docked $1.40 for some infraction was mistaken.

I agree with Kez, it is "Rate" of pay, if it had been a deduction, it would have had something in the record saying he was punished for something (usually away without authority) and would have said "forfeit" pay, and how much (eg "forfeit 60 days pay")

Hopefully it wasn't "me" that told you that??? (I have been wrong before)

No, it wasn't you. It was a veteran I spoke with in person, however, given the writing size, legibility and the brevity of his inspection the mistake is understandable.

Here's the Rates of Pay, for the Canadian Army during the war, you can see a Private in 1944 recieve $1.30 a day, and after 4 months, it went up to $1.40. This was for "general service", you you qualified for a trade, you would get trade's pay on top of that etc etc
