Interpreting Pension Ledgers & Index Cards

I have already received help from Russ in regards as to where the 2/7th Royal Scots were. I now need some help as to what some of the information on these cards actually means.962999085_Screenshot2021-06-01121627.png.c6600dfc40c3e103525ec236874cba32.png

 

I understand D of D.

I know 38801/H was his Chelsea No.

Think I understand the centre piece and is that Separation Allowance on the right?

 

The full cards are on my thread 2/7th Battalion Royal Scots on Soldiers.

 

Many thanks for any light that can be thrown on these.

11/M/389377

A Ministry of Pensions claim reference [disability claim it would appear]

11 = SE England Region

M = Military claim

389377 = Claim number

[the corresponding ledgers seem to be lost - as are the vast majority of claim files themselves/couldn't find his listed amongst the few retained as PIN 26 files at TNA]

 

SAI 1629

I believe related to a personal identification [would be on a document that he required in order to claim his pension at a Post Office I think]

Thank you so much Matlock. Interesting about the disability, perhaps that was why he was discharged in 1917. I was not aware of anything but I was only 6 when he died.

My existing records show that 38801/H would date from between 30 May 1917 and 07 June 1917 and so the admission date of 30 May 1917 from the card would indicate that the 38801/H is his original Chelsea number from the date of discharge (men were sometimes allocated new Chelsea numbers at a later date but not in this case).

Thank you Craig. Only just seen this, I didn't get an email to say someone had added to the thread. Any ideas about the dates & numbers & letters on the one with red writing please?

4433 Suffolk D(ischarge) D(ocument)'s called up under 38801H, Sent to London Region. 31/12/21

There must have been some query in Dec 1921 where they sent for the file being held under the Chelsea number so that they could deal with that query.

Thanks Craig, that's probably why I couldn't find his service records when he was 4433 in the 1st Suffolks, they were added to his WW1 records & all went up in smoke in WW2!!

 

Any idea what the dates & letters down the left hand side mean, please?

On the card "Bd" probably means a Board - with dates for this ... and other matters.

Many of such annotations on cards usually seem to relate to the adminstration of the claim, often annotated with initials etc. - despatch/movement/receipt of documents and files etc. - and not necessarily the event itself

I'll leave Craig to potentially answer the other bits which as I comment seem related to the administration of the claim.
