Struck off strength

  • alfredadams by alfredadams

    How do you classify a person who has departed sick and a few pages later is named as struck off strength?

    I wouldn't tag the second instance at all. They'll already show as departed, so you'd end up double counting. If they joined another unit, then it should be mentioned in the other diary, at which point they'd crop up again as 'joined'.

    Hope that helps!
