Medical Board query

Recommended Posts

tootrock

A man I am researching contracted a "social" disease, and had to appear before hospital medical boards. On the minute sheet/wrapper for his papers it has the results of these boards. Typically these say:

"Unfit G.S 10 weeks

in, not by

Unfit H.S. 8 weeks

Unfit L.S 6 weeks"

(I take it that G, H, and L are General, Home and Light service respectively)

But what is meant by "in, not by"?

Or the condition arose while 'in' service but was not (caused) 'by' service.

Tew,

I think you are right. In the actual Medical Board reports there is a series of questions to be answered regarding his fitness, and also "Was it contracted in the service?", "Was it contracted under circumstances over which he had no control?", and "Was it caused by military service?"
