Remembered Today:

Abbreviations on a Casualty Form


Recommended Posts

On his Army Form B.103 a young officer invalided home with shell shock in 1916 is shown admitted aboard a Hospital Ship 'To England for HS ex HSA' (that may be 7SA or TSA). Any guesses at what those initials stand for? And would the Casualty Form - Active Service continue to describe Army Hospital admissions - eg. Netley - after he left the ship? (There are no such admissions listed so I suppose he may simply have gone home.)

Thankyou All, as ever.

Idiot! I have just realised it's 'per HS' meaning 'by Hospital Ship' but I'd still welcome enlightenment on the other points.

Hi Eric,

Can't get my head around the lot, only thing I could think of was maybe HS refers to Home Service which he may have been a suitable candidate for and therefore there would be no evidence of hospital admission.

wild guess
