Have posted on this soldier on another thread Click but need help reading these particular entries from an enlistment ledger held at the Dunkeld Scottish Horse Museum. I think I have most of the information but just need reassured I am right so far, and help with the missing entries.

 

23/9/1915 Wounded

5/10/1915 Admitted Hospital Cairo Shrapnel scalp or (Suffering Scabies?)

8/12/1915 Admitted Hospital Eastleigh Rheum or R Femur?

14/12/1915 Transferred to Govan

1/9/1916 Transferred to 3/3rd Regiment (Scottish Horse)

25/4/1916 Transferred to 1/3rd Regiment

6/6/1916 Transferred to Royal Engineers (TF)

31/7/1916 Transferred to Cairo ?? ??? Port Said

31/7/1916 Admitted Hospital Cairo Enteritis

9/8/1916 Admitted Convalescent  Depot Boulaq Ad Dakrour  [Could this be a misspelling of "Beirut"?  [Edited 8.50 a.m. 8/12/2018 Possibly 9/8/1918?]

Thanks Craig Convalescent something was my first thought. I wonder if the last entry is "Dacrour"a misspelling of Boulaq Ad Dakrour, Giza? He died 27/12/1918 buried at Beirut.

Medical History list only these CD's for Egypt so I think you're correct.
