Reboarding in New Zealand Camps

Reboarding in New Zealand Camps

In camps in New Zealand the number of those who were downgraded for skin disease seems to have approximated 1 per cent of the total who were reboarded. In an analysis made in 1943 it was found that nearly two-thirds of these cases had skin trouble before enlistment, but no note had been made on the boarding form by the civilian board. The chief troubles were eczema, acne, psoriasis, and recurring tinea, with the older age group predominating.
