Arthur’s medal index card shows that he was discharged 5th September 1917 as suffering from sickness. This does not specify what sickness, but presumably he was wounded and his health became worse. His medal index card shows he was discharged under Kings Regulations Para 392 (xvi), indicating he was no longer physically fit for service. He was awarded the Silver War Badge No.235794.
