HC Deb 09 July 1868 vol 193 c948

said, he had heard with surprise that officers returning home from Abyssinia had been deprived of their travelling allowance. He had given Notice to move— That, in the opinion of this House, it is not expedient that officers returning home on account of wounds or diseases contracted in Her Majesty's service shall be deprived of the usual travelling allowance. He did not wish to trouble the House with a formal Motion; but he hoped he should have from the Secretary for War an assurance that officers returning home should no longer be deprived of this allowance.
