Interpreting Medical Records

Recommended Posts

Blue Dragoon

Hello

 

can anyone help interpret a medical record.

 

What does the designation E2 refer to and what med organisation is 9CD?

 

Many thanks for your help

9CD would, I think, be 9th Convalescent Depot?

 

Can't see where E2 is on the above

EDIT: Ah, found it. I wonder if it is the Ward No on the Ambulance Train?

Many thanks. Any idea where I can get info on 9th Convalescence or Command Depot?

The Long Long Trail has an excellent page on Command Depots for convalescant patients.

 

https://www.longlongtrail.co.uk/soldiers/a-soldiers-life-1914-1918/the-evacuation-chain-for-wounded-and-sick-soldiers/command-depots/

 

Unfortunately while it gives a long, long list of locations (and shows the massive scope of the operation) it doesn't list them by number. Personally I found the page eye opening, especially the information on what went on in - and not just because a relative died in one.
