rolt968 Posted 8 February , 2022 Share Posted 8 February , 2022 I am wondering if a sergeant who was reduced to the ranks for drunkenness on 12 December 1914 was the victim of a miscarriage of justice. His medical record shows that he suffered from Otitis Media. It was not diagnosed as such until 29 December 1914, but he was suffering from "earache" from an earlier date until 23 December 1914 (the burning of his record has obliterated both the start of the earache and the number of days involved). The otitis media continued until 16 February 1914. I am wondering if undiagnosed otitis medi had been mistaken for drunkenness or at least the condition made his drunken condition seem worse than it was.
