WWI Disability Code P43

Hello All

Can any one help?  I have not long downloaded  my grandfather’s war record.  The date he left service was 7 1 1919.   They have crossed out Discharge and wrote something over I can’t work out (have tried to upload an image, but will not work tonight).   Anyhow.

Rank for pension Class V

Nature of Disability Code P 43

Debility ………………………… Attribute

Degree of Disablement 20%

It then goes on to with how much pension etc.

Can  anyone tell me what this meant

Many thanks

Hi Steve

Class V was for the rank of Private and equivalent. No one seems to know what the disability codes stand for. Men injured in WW1 were classed in terms of %age disability. There should also be a period stated, afterwhich his disability would be reaccessed. In 1914 a temporary disability pension would be paid for up to 18 months, for a man with less than 6 years service.

Can you say how much a day pension he was paid?

Hello  Ken

Thanks for interest, will try to upload image again today.

The period stated was from 3 9 19 and to be reviewed in 69 weeks. 28 12 1920

He was paid I think it reads 5/6 per week, five shillings and sixpence?

'Warrant and Article under which granted RW 18 + 19 Art (1)

Thanks Steven

Here goes trying to upload again.

Don't be sorry mate! ;D We Mods are not fierce!

Military docs need a little more visibility than most due to the nature of them!

If they go over the top in amount, I'll let you know!
One more charge and then be dumb,
            When the forts of Folly fall,
        May the victors when they come
            Find my body near the wall.

Thanks Steven

RW is the "Royal Warrant for the Pay, Promotion, and Non-effective Pay of the Army", aka the Pay Warrant.

Does it say “..Weekly Rate .... 5/6 & Bonus to 2-9-19, then 8/? to 28-12-20”?

Hello Ken

Thanks for interest you asked "Does it say “..Weekly Rate .... 5/6 & Bonus to 2-9-19, then 8/? to 28-12-20”?

I just blew it up in photoshop and I believe it says Bonus to 2 - 9-10, then 8/7, to 28-12-20.

Am impressed you could read that.

Have attached a larger section.

Thanks again

Steven

Just noticed at bottom is says 'Appeal Under Article 9'

Nature of Award, which I can't read - sorry

Hi Steven

I believe it says "Nature of Award = Condl", ie conditional.
