Hi all. Can anybody help me with an entry on the above soldier's service record which i am struggling to understand. I'll post the image of the relevant page but I can't work out what the final entry on the page means. 

You'll see on the final entry a reference where the soldier is admitted to 1/1 SMFA (South Midland Field Ambulance) but i can't work out what 'admitted to PUO & 48 DRS means.' 

Any help/suggestions would be very much appreciated.

It stands for Pyrexia of Unknown Origin. It was a fever. DRS refers to Divisional Rest Station.
