Dear All ,

Can anyone help , i'am just going through my grandfather's service record and understand it all except the following - 

Admitted to hospital  V.W.G

It's very clear to read , but the V could be a U .

 

Any idea's on the condition ?

 

Cheers

Martin

Hi Martin. I had a feeling the W would turn out to be a D. VDG = Venereal Disease Gonorrhoea

Many thanks Diane,

 

Makes sense , i think i have been looking at it for too long , and convinced myself it was a W , but then i would have still not known what it was .

 

Looked over the record again and found this entry from a few months later , do you think it could be a second case ?

 

Thanks again for taking the trouble to help.

No. I think he was possibly suffering from seborrhoea - it certainly doesn't look like gonorrhoea
