Scope and Content

Exercise book belonging to Platt titled 'Operation book duplicate', dated 1 December 1919. The volume lists operations at Grangethorpe Military Hospital in chronological order from 10 December 1919 to 18 January 1922. The book gives the following information for each operation: the ward, the date of operation, the name of the patient and their regiment etc, diagnosis, and the names of the anaesthetist and surgeon. Some operations are marked 'N', apparently signifying nerve operations, and some are marked 'T', possibly for tendons. The operations marked 'N' correspond to the operation descriptions on ulnar nerve injuries (PLA/1/2/3).
