HC Deb 15 June 1910 vol 17 cc1432-3W

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that Mr. T. Bromwich, of 46, Gordon Road, Chatham, aged thirty-four, late corporal in the East. Yorkshire Regiment, No. 4,575, was discharged as medically unfit on 24th January, 1899, after seven years and forty-five days' service, as being incapable of work from rheumatism contracted in India; that he is still incapable of work from the same cause; and that a pension of 10d. a day awarded to him expired in the year 1907; and if he will inquire into the case and see whether a small pension or allowance can, in the circumstances, be made?


This man was not discharged for rheumatism, but in consequence of "flat foot," which was not con- sidered to be due to service. The Commissioners of Chelsea Hospital consider that his case has been met by the grant of a temporary pension.
