Leo, I'm familiar with the abbreviations FF, BS, BM and BF, but what is a BO?
Thanks
Peter

Hi Peter,

the abbreviations B and BO/Bo for Beobachter/Observer are common. In the Gen.Qu. loss returns B is customary.

Regards
Leo

Thanks guys.
Silly me, I was trying to make out something consistent with the other abbreviations with 2 words like Bord-O.........
The simple B might have been easier to work out .
Cheers
