Acronyms used in 402 ORB

Hello
Can some one confirm if I have the following acronyms that I found in the No.402 RCAF (f) sqaudron ORB (operational record book) are correct and need help on one:

HDT: Horse draw transport
MET: mechanized enemy transport or motorized enemy transport.
TRG: Target?


Cheers
Santiago

HDT is correct.

MET is mechanized transport. MT appears to be offical, at least later in the war, but MET shows up in several RCAF records I've seen.

TRG could be training, or Troops and Guns. Depends on context.

Meteorologists were often referred to as Met Men. Also weather in general was referred to as Met
