TEW Posted 23 April , 2016 Share Posted 23 April , 2016 Is anyone aware of an Army Order relating to SIWs. I've seen Sue's list of SIW types admitted to CCS but spotted a diary entry in 6 ADMS that reads: Visited 17 FA Amb re a SI wound sent to CCS, Pt. was one of [.....] Bn. who injured his head with a pick & this was thought not to be a SI but accidental wound. Explained to OC who should have known that under the army order he had no option but to consider it a SI. It is for the FGCM to determine if it was purposefully or carelessly inflicted. wo95/1592/2 part 3 4/12/1915 Same diary has a fair bit on injuries to hand or fingers being filtered out as SIWs except of course for the officer with hand wound who had time off at rest camp. Interested to see how the Army Order was worded ie was it a list of injury types? Don't think that all cases IDd as SIW by FAs/CCSs were automatically sent for FGCM, many were discharged back to unit. Same diary also mentions filtering out 'true shell shock from the shell funk cases' but that can be another story. TEW Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
