Hi folks, 

           Im hoping someone can help me to understand some of the text on my grandfathers pension card, the part in particular is the disabilty section , i remember as a young boy seeing his lower legs which i now suspect to have been trenchfoot or similar.

 Waiting in anticipation for a reply thank you.

Welcome to the forum,

  His disability is V.D.H., valvular disease of the heart.

 

Regards,

 

Alf McM

Thank you so much alf for a very speedy reply. That disability certainly never handicapped his ability to have a manual labour job , he was a hod carrier on building sites and lived up to 1962. 

Once again alf thank you very much for your help.

Might it have affected his circulation, thus leading to discoloration of his lower legs? Not a doctor so don't quote me!
