James Green 241129 East Lancs Regt Pension Document
« on: Monday 18 January 21 19:33 GMT (UK) »
Hi. I have just downloaded a pension document and I am struggling to understand it. On the left hand side it has various letters  and number. Does anyone know what they mean please. Many thanks as always

The pension cards are explained here:

I think you will find that the entries meant something with regard to payment/correspondence at the time and without other parts of the system are unintelligible today.

The WFA are always ready to answer queries.

Thanks MaxD. James Green was discharged in 1918 and according to his pension/service records was first admitted to Netley, then the Lord Derby Hospital in Warrington, then finally the Ďasylumí in Lancaster. Unfortunately the sheet that probably states his diagnosis is very difficult to read. He remained in Lancaster until his death in 1964 and is buried in Burnley. I will post that paper for you, I have edited it the best I can, in the hope you can shed some light. Many thanks
