    The diary says: Dr Harris of 1 Coy of Train absents himself. Does this mean he is a deserter? AWD0003740

    Regarding Driver Harris I have used the tag 'Absent without leave or deserter' for him for his person tag.

    Dv. is the abbreviation for driver, rather than Dr.

    I think you're right to use the AWOL tag here.
