My father was hospitalised in August 1945, possibly in India before shipping to Malaya. Unfortunately I have no one left now in my family to ask what he was suffering from. I have contacted his old regiment and strangely enough they had no record whatsoever of his being in hospital at all!! However, I have a picture taken by him of a hospital ward (obviously tropical) with an 'X' marking which bed was his. I also have a letter he wrote home to his sister and mother stating that the Colonel had been in to see him after having had a chat with the Medical Officer about Dad's condition, and that he was to remain in hospital for a further 10 days and then have a short period of rest before rejoining the regiment (he was delighted to discover that he would not be struck off the strength). This question about what he was suffering from is something I would like to find the answer to, but I don't really know where to turn for that answer since his own regiment has no such record. If anyone could give me some pointers I would be very grateful. Thank you in advance, RRTB.
