HC Deb 18 August 1893 vol 16 cc511-2
MR. TULLY (Leitrim, S.)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War what reply was given to the Memorial on behalf of Thomas Feeny, who was private (No. 388) for four years in the Second North Lincoln Regiment, Tenth Foot, from 1858 to 1862; whether he is aware that this man was invalided from the effects of sunstroke in South Africa, and sent home to his relatives in Ballina-more, County Leitrim, utterly destitute, and left a burden on them since; and whether, under the circumstances, some pension or compensation can be granted to him?


No Memorial can be traced as having been received at the War Office on behalf of Thomas Feeny. The soldier was discharged in 1862 after less than four years' service on account of congenital mental imbecility. His papers do not refer to sunstroke in South Africa.
