HC Deb 02 December 1920 vol 135 cc1458-9W

asked the Secretary of State for War on what grounds Lieutenant C. H. Glendinning, 3rd Royal Irish Rifles, whose treatment whilst stationed at Cawnpore in March, 1917, has received such wide publicity in the British and Indian Press, was relieved from duty on his return to that station from Ranikhet in command of troops on 30th August, 1917, and placed under restraint as a mental case, although he had spent five months on duty at Ranikhet, where he was passed fit for active service by two medical officers and placed in command of a detachment?


Owing to a recurrence of fixed delusions that persons were conspiring against him, Lieutenant Glen-dinning was admitted to hospital for further observation on 30th August, 1917. He was finally brought before a Medical Board on 20th October, diagnosed as suffering from "neurasthenia" and invalided to England on 4th November.
