Hi 1879Graves .
At the best of times I struggle with Victorian Documents as you well know . :lol!: :lol!: . But I cant see '' No '' , it seems to me to be
''Nil '' if anything !. Shocked Shocked . Even that seems not quite right . Idea Idea . What do the rest of you think ? . I was
even thinking it may be a lost Victorian word or Abbreviation for no or nil or someother to signify no or nil . Now I'm getting confused !!!!!.
cheers 90th. Idea

90th, i think we have No, Nil and Nil descending.
If you look at "effects of wounds", which says "Nil", pop your thumb over the "il" of "Nil" and see the ornate shape of the "N" which this Victorian hand has written. Look above at where it says "wounds" on the form and discern the "N" that has been written in. The only letter that follows that is clearly an "o".

Hi All

Have a look at the rest of the record and you will see there are two NO's.

As Tasker says
Quote :
ornate shape of the "N" which this Victorian hand has written.
