HC Deb 29 May 1913 vol 53 c340W

asked the Secretary for War whether he can sea his way to granting compensation to Lieut.-Colonel. Wesley, V.D., 4th East Lancashire Regiment, who was injured by his horse falling on some granite setts during some combined manœuvres on 9th October, 1910?

Colonel SEELY

This officer was not injured during manœuvres, but was proceeding to the place of rendezvous of a mixed force to take part in a field day, when his horse slipped up in the streets of Darwen. The officer has received £25 in respect of medical expenses, but the Regulations do not, in such a case, admit of any other form of compensation being paid.
