WW1 medical records - struggling with hand writing
« on: Sunday 19 December 21 19:17 GMT (UK) »

 For some time now I have been researching my great grandfathers ww1 journey. It took me a while to track the records down on ancestry but I have found a very interesting document which is a medical report of his extensive injuries.
 What I have been told passed down by family is that he was badly wounded by shrapnel in the head and left unconscious for many hours in no mans land before being rescued. In older age he had Ďa dent in his headí that he always pointed out to people! I was also told he fought at the Somme.

I am trying to decipher the hand writing on these medical records, but it is extremely hard to read and I definitely need some help! What I want to know is, am I allowed to post the medical records on here? He has long since passed away. I noticed there was a specific forum for hand writing so wasnít sure which forum to post in!
