Scope and Contents

"This man, an old soldier, is said to be peculiar. He is a good scholar, a beautiful writer, but you cannot make any sense out of him - just talks nonsense. He would not work before the war, but has been working about the aerodrome recently. Used to loaf about the stables, was a sort of groom but never had a real job. Well read. PAO says this man used to have very bad drinking bouts. Nurse says this man raves and acts the goat. Dr confirms chronic alcoholism, working ability impaired."
