Medical Abbreviation drawn from Casualty Card - Help!

Recommended Posts

Evening everyone.  This is the Casualty Form for Lt Edmund Brash (before he was commissioned) as lodged in the National Archives.  Pretty much sorted his domestic and service record.  Anyone know what the abbreviation is between 58 and 59 Field Ambulance?  Looks like 5 CRS?? Tried a CRS search on LLT but nothing comes up

Great spot FROGSMILE thanks very much.  Having looked at the 9th Bn WD they didnt seem to be sustaining casualties at the end of Jan/beginning of Feb 1917 so him having some sort of ailment requiring such hospitalisation would fit.
