Remembered Today:

Casualty forms

West riding

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

Hope you don't mind me asking for help again. I have a copy of my Grandads casualty form active service. Does anybody know what the following entries mean?

In base detach class A

Granted class I

Something that looks like "multiple Books"

Not much to go on, hope someone has an idea what these forms were used for.

Hello Gary

"Class A" probably refers to a medical classification of "fit for active service". From 1916 on it was subdivided into A1, A2, A3 and A4.

"Class I" probably refers to the higher level of proficiency pay of 6d a day (casualty forms also recorded promotions, appointments and anything else affecting a soldier's pay).

Not sure about "multiple books". Perhaps the context will be clearer if you can post a scan of the form.
