"Gunshot Wound IX (1)" Meaning ???

Recommended Posts

Hopefully someone can tell me the meaning/significance of "IX" in "Gunshot Wound IX (1)", I am assuming the "(1)" means one wound.

 

The wound was described as "Right Thigh Severe".

 

TIA.

Funnily enough no it wasn’t David but a great link which covers them all ....it’s my attempt at using the forums search facility on my phone that is the issue..... the thread I remember had a printed copy of the classifications from the inside cover of a casualty list I believe.

Thanks to the link from David where Promenade has typed it out, it's one document I'll never have to squint at again ;)
