An internet search provides a number of definitions of puggled which include both exhausted and drunk:

https://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=puggled   - has a reference also to Lallans usage.

As with the others, the context here helps greatly by suggesting gobsmacked rather than exhausted or drunk.

Sorry  MaxD & philipsearching. I could have made it easier. The letter was posted from RAF Sarafand Hospital in Palestine. You may be right with your suggested newspapers for currently I don't know the home of the patient or anything much about him except his signature 'Darkie'. The illness that hospitalised him for over a year is also not yet identified.
Anyway, thank you all for letting me make some progress. T
