He was not commissioned so guess he would just appear as "OR".

There is nothing obvious before Oct 44 admittance.

I don't appear to have a medical history sheet. Is that because I am not NOK,  nor could I find any to get permission, so just made a general application? It could be that it is lurking somewhere in the pile and, being unfamiliar with Army records, I've not spotted it yet.

Thanks again.  :)

As a sergeant perhaps more chance! Med history often not with the docs.

Just wondering if he might be listed on the casualty lists on FindMyPast - have you checked?

Good idea ShaunJ but could not find him.

MaxD....do I assume that his medical history is lost or possibly with hospital records? I am sure mum said he went straight to a hospital when he returned as he was on a stretcher.

Reading further, it appears that medical records are not routinely released for WW2 service folk, I am sorry to have misled you.  I did find reference to "[on specific application] each case is considered on its merits". 

Definitive advice in the link:

It's not a problem, I'm very grateful for your help.

Thanks to you I now know that he was in Italy....the last place I could find was Gibraltar!
