HC Deb 31 May 1897 vol 49 c1632

I beg to ask the Financial Secretary to the War Office whether he is aware that the medical officers in Boyle have forwarded certificates that John Brennan, a Crimean veteran, formerly of the 41st Regiment, still bears the traces of the wounds received in the attack of Sebastopol; and whether in view of this man's very destitute condition, he will recommend that a grant, the same as last year, be made to him from the fund for the relief of Crimean veterans?


No such certificates have been received nor was any award made to Brennan last year from Army funds.
