The top box contains the name, unit, and original occupation of the patient, as well as the name/nature of the illness or injury suffered, and a brief description of the circumstances under which the soldier became a casualty. The second box records details of the nature of the treatment given, and the bottom box contains notes on the patient's progress/deterioration. This item was captured at Sio in June 1944.
