Remembered Today:

I am researching an officer (Capt. Leigh Bruce Partington 1 NF) who was admitted to medical units twice during 1916 & 1917. I can usually decipher the disease or wounds, but these two have me stumped.

He was first admitted to 34 CCS in August 1916 with "P.U.O." from where he was transferred to No.4 AT - which I assume is Ambulance Train.

Then, in April 1917 he was admitted to Queen Alexandra's Military Hospital, Millbank suffering from "N.Y.W.", being transferred to "PHB".

Can anyone help with "P.U.O.", "N.Y.W." and what was "P.H.B"???

Thanks as always for all help.

OK It is NYD not yet diagnosed.

PHB will be a hospital, possibly Public Hospital B******

Hopefully an expert will be able to identify it for you.

There may be a clue in MCC Pinching's entry as he too was transferred to PHB on 5/4/17 but died on 20/4/17.

Indeed it has as a report of his death mentions Princess Henry of Battenberg's Hospital, London.
