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 manuvres on 9th October, 1910?
§ Colonel SEELY
This officer was not injured during manuvres, 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.
