help with WW1 medical report
« on: Sunday 03 March 19 19:15 GMT (UK) »
Hoping for help again please with a WW1 medical report (see attached).  What does P.O.U.C. mean?  Also 'Bron' (bronchitis?) Obviously severe enough to be sent back to England. 

Record belongs to Private 4343 Harry Young, HAC.

On this list there is P.U.O which is pyrexia of unknown origin.

Possibly the P in P.O.U.C stands for pyrexia?

As JenB surmises - Pyrexia of unknown cause (more usually unknown origin) - a high sustained fever whose cause is not yet determined - needs further examination of possibilities hence being sent home - see Not Yet Detemined which follows.  Bronc is almost certainly as you say.

Thanks MaxD and JenB - appreciate your responses.  As you say very sad as he died so soon after returning to France.
