It is National Fire Service but was only created in August 1941. AFS is Auxiliary Fire Service and was the former name of the NFS. Given the date of death he should be recorded as AFS.

F.A.P. will be First Aid Post.

Note the date 14th March 1941 which was the Clydebank Blitz

We have AFS on the abbrevations thread. I will add NFS

He is listed on the memorial at Strathclyde Fire and Rescue Service HQ in Hamilton.

Can't seem to find it.
