4. U/A/L/Bdr & P/A/L/Bdr

Unpaid Acting Lance Bombardier & Paid Acting Lance Bombardier. (I think)
As for the rest, I have no idea.

A.A. is "Army Act" (I think). King's Regulations (at that time).

In exactly what conext do these abbreviations occur?

C.P.O.A might be a Command Post Officer's Assistant - if this is a training record and he is a Lance Bombardier. Thats the bright chap who actually does the artillery command post calculations which the CPO then checks.

Thanks Pteranadon. This is a Service Record of my partner's late father, who served WWII with 85th Field/Mountain Regiment R.A. (T.A.). Your suggestion could well be correct as under Qualifications it states - Signaller and C.P.O.A. Shortly afterwards he was granted S.P.P., which we now believe to be Special Proficiency Pay - awarded to those who undertook extra duties due to their special abilities.
Once again, thank-you very much for your help.
Emma
