Could a pal please translate the following for me please from the Roll of Individuals entitled to the War Badge.

It normally says wounds or sickness for discharge but the following just have a code.

2.(d)

2.(B).1

2.(a).1

I couldn't find any reference on a search on here on on the mother site.

The full citation normally reads as something like this example:

P392 xvi KR. R of E act 1917 P & T Dis. for M.S. 2b

I think that the subsections to M.S 2 cover disease, wounds, sickness etc

I would love to know what the R of E Act 1917 is :blink:

I asked the very same question some months ago and didn't get a definitive response. However, it would transpire that Army Order 265 II Silver War Badge (Published on 10 Aug 1917) is what you need someone to have a look at.

There was a partial response on another thread which went....

2. b. Those who having served as soldiers and being still of Military age, have been discharged under the conditions set forth at (i) and (ii) in (a)

(a) i. After service overseas in the armed forces of the crown, on account of disablement or ill health caused otherwise than by misconduct.

However, you need someone with access to that Army Order to get you what you want.
