    Cant make out text??

    I'm having difficulty making out all the text for item 2 on this photo. All I can make out is "Taking a (word) (word) (word) Wagon" Anyone else have better luck?

    Thanks Lin that seems to make sense. And yes it's from his army service record.

    Reckon it is fatigue OC. The word means in service parlance, a man who is doing a specific task or possibly an onerous one and I guess that he wasn’t supposed to be given a lift. The whole extract looks like an extensive rap sheet.

    Yes agree with you grumpy it definitely looks like "fatigue" He sounds like a "very slovenly" solider, I mean "trotting his mule along the road" what a bad soldier.
