Exp Sig Mech

Expert/Express sig mech: I have in fact seen Expert Sig Mech listed in full. I will trust that express sig mech is also real. Making Exp an ambiguous abbreviation. --Paulmd199 15:03, 9 December 2010 (UTC)

Notes from the Message Boards

There is a theme that keeps coming up when keying the occupations on this project. "If the first occupation is Fireman and the rest say "do" that means to key the first and copy down the rest." "do" is not an occupation, it means ditto. Please key the occupation that appears above.
