Yes I have just joined both sites and put out the same topic on each.
I have a copy of the Pension Ledgers and Index Card but there is no column for Injury or wounding


The WFA Card says he had a GSW to the right shoulder.  30% disability.

 Thanks for posting.
 Any thing involving the 2nd Bn is of great interest to me.
