HC Deb 23 July 1875 vol 225 c1908

asked the Secretary of State for War, Whether it is true that the senior Captain of the North Tipperary Light Infantry Regiment of Militia was absent from the training of the regiment in the year 1874 upon a sick certificate; whether in this year, having applied for sick leave, a medical board was asked for to report upon his fitness for service, and that pursuant to its report he was ordered to join his regiment forthwith; and, whether he has declined to do so; and, if so, is he still retained on the list of Captains of the North Tipperary Regiment?


, in reply, said, it was true that the person referred to was absent from the training of the regiment. The Medical Board reported that he was fit for service, and he was ordered to join his regiment; but it appeared that the medical report was not made in sufficiently explicit terms. The officer in question still said he was unable to attend to the training, and the Medical Board had been ordered to make another report on the subject.
