Bernard_Lewis Posted 4 November , 2013 Share Posted 4 November , 2013 George Prowse VC was wounded a couple of times earlier in the war. His service record (downloaded from Kew) says of one of his wounds: 'GSW.VI.I.L.Side.VIII.I L.Shldr.Slt.NOK Inf...' I assume this means gun-shot (or shrapnel?) wound left side, no idea what the Roman numerals mean. The 'Slt' I take to mean 'slight' though another source says the wound(s) was 'severe'. NOK is clear... He was wounded 23 April 1917 and went back to a reserve battalion on 12 July 1917. Does that equate to 'severe' I wonder? What about the Roman numerals? There is also mention of his being entitled to 'detained pay' - any idea what that means? Any comment gratefully received. Bernard Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
