Does anyone know what H1629 Compressed Ribs (Brush) means?  - Is this influenza?

Hi Vic,

 

H1629 is probably the number of the list. Without seeing the record, I doubt it will be influenza. Might it be Compressed Ribs (Crush)? Can you post a link/image?

 

Regards

Chris

Hi Chris - I did think it might be Crush as in crushed rather than Brush - but I'm rubbish at deciphering.  Image curtsy Ancestry.co.uk

Hi Vic

 

I agree with Chris it is "Crush" as I read it.

Hi Vic,

 

I think that it is 'crush' too - the construction of the letter appears to be the same as the 'c' in 'compressed'.

It'll be interesting to find out if there is any mention anywhere of this in the war diaries as it happened at home.  He was transferred from the cavalry on 14/6/15 - so it may well have been an injury with a horse.

If it happened at home, there probably won't be a war diary - UK units weren't required to keep them.

There are exceptions. The 11th Argyll & Sutherland Highlanders kept a diary for the home period (which I have), don't ask me now where I got it.

Chris the reason that points to home for me is that he didn't go to France till after this date.
