Remembered Today:

Understanding a letter and injury report


Recommended Posts

Hi again, 

Here I have two documents on my Great Grandfather, his name was Archibald Gillies and these are from his time serving in the Machine Gun Corps.

The first and second one I am interested if anyone can understand what his injuries were because it states at the top “The disability is of a ___________ nature” and I cannot decipher what it says in the space provided. 

The third document I am just interested if anyone can get any information out of it but if not it is fine I was just curious. I couldn’t and I don’t know if it even means much but I figured I should try and ask.


Also so sorry for such quality as I could not download the images so I had to take a picture of them. All sources provided are taken from ancestry.com


Thank you for your time,
