I think you will find that the "W" before a rank was to indicate War Substantive ranks on official documentation. All servicemen retained shadow substantive ranks as if it were peace time and were promoted in their shadow ranks as normal - time, qualifications and recommendation. A serviceman could be promoted to many ranks above his shadow rank. After the war servicemen reverted to their shadow rank, this applied to officers as well as OR's. My father was at one time a War Substantive WO1 but shadow SSgt. He was commissioned to W/Capt and as one of the lucky ones granted a short service commission in 1945 and eventualy granted a QM catergory commission, retiring as a Major. I have all the suporting documentation to show this. He was RASC and was a S/, he was originally a clerk.
