WHITE-39955-1.jpg THE PENSIONS OF CRIMEAN WAR VETERANS
WHITE (Sir George Stuart, 1835-1912, Field Marshal, Winner of the Victoria Cross, Commander in Chief in India and Defender of Ladysmith)

Autograph Letter Signed to Sir Algernon TUDOR-CRAIG (1873-1943, Army Officer, Heraldist and Author of books on Art History) saying he believes that Craig has heard from "Tatham Hughes how the Commissioners of Chelsea Hospital stand with regard to the cases of Thos Sullivan & Thos Paul. Thos Sullivan was allowed to commute his entire pension of 1/- a day, in 1894 for the sum of £175-8-7 and consequently we can do nothing further for him. He remains a useful example of the necessity of being most particular in allowing pensioners to commute their pensions - this case has resulted in the stigma to the service of a Veteran with Crimean Turkish Long Service and Good Conduct Medals being in the Work house altho' he has a good character. Thos Paul will almost certainly get 1/- a day campaign pension - as his 'felony' will be forgiven him, 18 years having elapsed since he committed it. He has lost 7½ a day for 18 years, or in other words he has, in addition to other punishment, suffered a fine of over £200 ..", 2 sides 4to., Royal Hospital, Chelsea headed paper, 6th November
