Sixpence per ??? for twelve months (pension).

This is from a form A46 (concerned with pension applications) sent to the CO of "2 York & Lancaster". It is not dated, but I think about the end of 1908 or beginning of 1909. The figure in the left hadn column  is the pension awarded in pence. All the others on the page were rejected. The man concerned was discharged with "Valvular disease of the heart".Sixpence.jpg.b1cc4b035b7f441e66e0e08af7a30e91.jpg

 

He was awarded 6d for twelve months, but 6d per what? Per day?

Thank you.

I had tended to think it might be 6d a week. 6d a day in the days of "shilling a day" men seemed generous for a private who had only served three and a half years. The entries I have seen in WFA pension records are per week, but do say that.

In 1900 a Private was paid 6d per day or more in disability pension.

Thanks Craig,

That is very useful.

Presumably it would apply to heart disease apparently attributable or partly attributable to service which resulted in discharge following service in India a few years later.
