Remembered Today:

Anti malarial treatment - reference in service record

Ivor Lee

Recommended Posts

I have come across a service record for a man who contracted malaria whilst serving in Salonika and was repatriated to the U.K.

In October 1918 he was sent to a Labour Corps company in France - in his service record is the entry

"Posted overseas for Anti Malaria treatment "Y" Scheme"

The Authority for this appears to be WO Letter/24/Gen No/6307 (AMD2b) 3-10-18 and EC 5/93521 (AI) 10-10-18

I presume the latter is a reference to an ACI

Does anyone know anything of "the Anti-Malarial Treatment Y" Scheme or can help with the references?

This is an entry that really intrigues me
