    Default Unit marking on general service medal

    I'm looking at a British General Service medal with a Palestine clasp. I don't recognize the unit of the soldier it was issued to. It doesn't match up with any units on the sites I've found of units who were stationed there.

    AS.30274 CPL P. MATETOANE A.P.C.

    Is the name and unit. Does anyone have an idea? Thank you for your time and help.
