HC Deb 07 May 1903 vol 122 cc22-3
MR. FLAVIN (Kerry, N.)

I beg to ask the Financial Secretary to the War Office whether his attention has been directed to the case of No. 661, Private W. Fox, 1st Battalion 15th Regiment of Foot, who served about eleven years, was discharged from the Army owing to heart disease contracted through rheumatic fever while serving in the Army; and whether, in view of his character in the Army and of the fact that he was discharged without remuneration or pension, and that he had active and Foreign service in Bermuda, St. John's, and New Brunswick, he can, in view of this man's age and present condition, grant him a small pension.


The case cannot at present be traced from the information supplied in the Question. Will the hon. Member kindly forward the man's discharge certificate or the date of his discharge to enable further search to be made?


I will forward the documents asked for.
