5.57 Male, 14 yrs and under, Head Injury, May 1946

Identifier: EUA IN1/ACU/S2/17/1/5

Scope and Contents

This boy fractured his skull two or three years ago - I think he landed on his heels. He is said to have made strange gestures ever since, sometimes sits crouching over the fire for hours saying nothing. Has been seen by several specialists. Seems quite intelligent, fly enough to make use of his disability, very little at school. House clean but overcrowded, mother tries hard. Decent hard-working people.
