The following I've managed to extract from the service papers for Sapper 132085 John Stedman who served with 178 Tunnelling Coy (BEF) when wounded on 6 June 1916, admitted to hospital on 7th and returned to coy on 10th. Transferred to 174 Tunnelling Coy 30 July 1916. His records show he was Wounded GSW Knee & Buttock on 19/9/1916, admitted 35 CCS on 20th and despatched to England 23/9/1916.  Discharged 23 July 1917 no longer physically fit for war service.  Unfortunately, my subscription to Ancestry expired before I could check if he was entitled to the War Badge.  I would be grateful if someone could please check the roll for badge number and for any details on his disability.

 

RegardsThank you, Roy

Hi Roy

 

The Silver War Badge Cd gives the number as 220022, issued on 09/08/1917.

John was discharged from 3rd Prov. Co. Royal Engineers code given as 392 (xvi) sickness.

 

Regards Andy.

There are some discharge papers and pension cards. Clear his back problems were caused by the GSW and one pension card records that reason for disability was corrected to such. The army kept an eye on him for several years.
