HC Deb 29 April 1914 vol 61 cc1711-2W

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that First Air Mechanic P. C. Strickland, Royal Flying Corps, was discharged medically unfit on the 8th July, 1913; that this man has since been admitted into Hanwell Asylum suffering from acute neurasthenia; and that he was the principal support of his mother, a widow; and whether, in view of the fact that the neurasthenia is stated by doctors to be due to shock received while on duty from the sight of a fatal accident, a small pension may be granted under Article 11G6, Royal Warrant?


Inquiry is being made. I will communicate with the hon. and gallant Member as soon as a decision has been arrived at.
