Hi,

My 2nd Great Grandfather was awarded the B and V medal however, in remarks was discharged but the exact wording is Discharged 'P.U 06/0/18.'

What does this mean?

Am trying to find out information on him.

Many thanks

Maz

It's actually "permanently unfit". A lot of men who became physically unfit recovered after treatment and returned to service, even in the front line.

I'm sure Ron is right, but when I saw the heading I wondered whether what you actually had was "P.U.O. 6/02/1918."

Have you checked the Silver War Badge Rolls?

Your title is so long the name of your soldier has been cut off.

As regards your request to delete duplicates, you can do this yourself in the top left of the light blue band in topics you've started there is an option marked 'Moderation', click on this and you will see the option to delete.

I know what you mean, but I don't think he would have been discharged from the Army just because he had a high temperature! Especially in February 1918.
