Completed: Army discharge 1858
« on: Saturday 15 July 23 18:42 BST (UK) »
Can anyone work out in consequence of what this says Private Timothy Holden was discharged in 1858 from the 84th Regiment of Foot?



It's clearly to do with him being unfit for service due to being (in the language used later in the document) an imbecile.  (He died in Lancaster Asylum in 1865.)

But I can't work out the underlined word Au..enti.. ? ? ?

Thank you both!

Amentia it is.

Not a term I'd heard before.  Must bear it mind if I'm ever on Countdown.
