    Tec 4 (Technician Four grade) is his Rank.

    Unit: I don't understand the "4 CO" but the rest is 4th Special Service Company. But I think they served in Europe?

    Cheers, Ade.

    Thanks Ade! My search of 4th Special Service Company turned up this, The 1st, 5th, and 6th Engineer Special Brigades were assigned to the European Theater of Operations, while the 2nd and 4th Engineer Special Brigades were assigned to the Pacific Theater of Operations.
