Cause of Discharge

I found a Medal Card tonight online for a relative and would like to know a bit more if possible as to what the cause of discharge might mean. I've attached a picture. Does this mean anything to anyone?

Paragraph 392 xvi of the King's Regulations merely means "No longer physically fit for war service", the reason being given as sickness.

 

Without service papers, it's hard to know more than that.

Paragraph 392 (xvi) of King's Regualtions: "no longer physically fit for active service". It is probably the commonest cause of discharge.

Thank you for the replies. There are no service records sadly probably due to the bombing in WWII. At least I've learned something new!

He gets a number of mentions in the Biggleswade Chronicle (assuming i've got the right man), enlistment etc but nothing specific.

 

He is mentioned in connection with his brother Omar's death, but it only says "Much sympathy is felt for the parents whose younger son is discharged from the army owing to being medically unfit following service in France"

Thanks Ray. He is one on a list of relatives that I am trying to locate medals for. I have another thread on that on this forum.
