It was serious whatever it was. Does his medical sheet say anything?

Began as not too serious.  PUO is Pyrexia (of) Unknown Origin - a fever/elevated temperature, the cause of which has not yet been determined.
It isn't clear from the record whether, when it became serious (ser), he remained in hospital in France from Dec 1916 to May 1917 - I doubt it.  It is often the case that leaving hospital goes unrecorded.  He is in 18 General Hospital in Camiers with the serious fever or whatever in Dec 1916, the next line he is arriving at Le Havre (presumably from UK) to 8 Infantry Base Depot.
It would be good to see the dates on the statement of service/military history form to find where he was between Dec 16 and May 17.

Thanks MaxD.  That's amazing.  I think I've come across PUO before and had no idea what it was.  You mention the dates on the statement of service/military history form - where would I find that or is it a page that in this case is missing?

Should be a Military History Sheet with a date box like the attached.  Sometimes written on the Statement of services form.
Guess work his might look like:
Home date date
BEF date date (first time abroad)
Home date date (Dec 16 ish after hospital)
BEF date date May 17 when back again
Home date date when discharged
