Swaying and nose wiping tic

This is Private Read, aged 32. He was buried by a shell in August 1917. When he arrived at the hospital, he had an hysterical swaying moving problem and a constant nose wiping tic. It took just 2 hours of treatment for the twitches to disappear and for Read to be able to walk correctly.
