Work Codes GBW 2007

I was able to, er, get the entire service record for Ming II, but I didn't know what the work codes meant, so doing a Google search on the code, I found this list..

It had 95% of the codes I was looking for, so maybe it will be of assistance to somebody else. I can't validate the accuracy of the list or codes...
