"MUL" ? Is it an idea to have a glossary?

Recommended Posts

Jonathan Saunders

I have a local lad I am reserching who was evacuated back to England with "MUL" - his wounds were the result of a large bit of German cold steel piercing his left thigh (possibly the L is for left).

Has anyone come across this abbreviation before or have any educated guesses as to what it might stand for?

Also I know I have asked for help on abbreviations at least once before. I wondered if it would be useful to have a glossary or medical glossary page/notice board?

Not a bad idea, Signals.

I'm sorry I can't help you with MUL.

I would think that the 'UL' bit is almost definitely 'upper leg' - the 'M' couldn't possibly be a 'W' for wound, could it?

Or could it be 'Mid/middle upper leg' - depending on what went before it? e.g. Wound MUL; GSW MUL; Amp./amputation MUL etc.

Sue it seems so obvious now ... thanks.

Chris possibly the glossary page is something for you to sleep on for another day but I am sure between all the users here we could have something quite comprehensive.
