Remembered Today:

Disability Code No 28?


Recommended Posts

I am researching a soldier who was discharged from the army in August 1919 on pension suffering from endocarditis (an infection of the lining of the heart). He died from malignant endocarditis in January 1921 and was buried in a private grave at a local cemetery.

His service papers, from The National Archives, contain a form ‘A 19/2’ entitled ‘FIRST AWARD – SOLDIER’. This has a section called ‘Nature of Disability Code No’ against which is a hand written ‘28’. The degree of disability is rated at 100% and attributed to army service.

Does anyone know what Disability Code No 28 refers to (presumably it covers endocarditis) and where, if at all, a list of these codes can be found?

His death occurred before the CWGC cut off date, but he is not recorded in the Debt of Honour Register. I am considering applying to the CWGC to have his name included and any help with this query would be appreciated.
