Hi I am looking at the following gent 

9/17801  Frederick Charles Skinner 

East Yorkshire Reg who was injured in March 1918 with a GSW to the head. He was then posted to the Yorkshire Reg, (Regimental Defence Corps) with a service number of 89978.

Would anybody Be able to find a casualty record with the exact date in March 1918 that he was wounded please?

Just a minor point for you is that he would have been posted to the Royal Defence Corps (RDC - previously National Reserve (formed from Veterans Reserve)).  The RDC was an auxiliary force comprised primarily from veterans of the regular and auxiliary forces (i.e. men with some degree of military experience) that was given the role of static point guarding.  They were generally older, or for other reasons, less mobile men).

Frederick Skinner appears in 3 Hospital records on Find My Past under the MH 106 entries. The attached shows that an operation was performed on the 28/3/18 which ties in with Tew’s post just now.
