    Default Continuous Certificate of Discharge query

    I have two CCD documents that belonged to my father dated from 1947 to 1952. I am currently using them to trace the details of voyages during this period.

    The query I have currently concerns abbreviations used. The TNA has a list of these, but I have some that are not covered...

    In the "Description of voyage" column the obvious ones are "Foreign" and "Fgn" (foreign abbreviated), but what does "HT" mean? It usually occurs where the engagement and discharge are close together and at the same port (eg. Ldn and Victoria Docks) and I am guessing he never went to sea during these periods but was simply "attached" to a ship. Does "HT" mean Home Tour or Home Trip?

    HT means Home Trade, usually a ship trading around the coast of Britain and close europe.
    From the Elbe to Brest.
    FGN is a ship trading world wide.
