Justinth Posted 8 January , 2012 Share Posted 8 January , 2012 Hello everybody I have just very kindly had replies on Robert Gilchrist Allan RAMC 4934 (my wife's great grandfather on the Soldiers thread) which indicates that as far as Kew/Ancestry goes there is no further to go at the moment. This leads me to the question of King's Regulations and the timeline for discharge in 1915 which I would be very grateful if I could ask for replies from the vast knowledge and expertise that is represented in this forum. In 1915 if you were discharged due to sickness under paragraph 392 xvi of King's Regulations (Robert Gilchrist Allan RAMC 4934 arrived in France on 5th January 1915 and was discharged 26th June 1915): 1) What was the standard process for deciding to discharge a soldier (in the case of my wife's great-grandfather he was probably discharged due to chlorine gas damage to his lungs, so he must have been injured from the 22nd April 1915 onwards)? 2) Would the discharge normally be decided by an officer in theatre or the UK? 3) Was there a standard time period (number of weeks) betweeen the injury and discharge? I know there is a real possibility that every discharge was different in terms of timing. I am very grateful for any advice that can be offered Thanks Justin Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
