Further InformationDischarge: ‘Private Daniel Davis (sic) is recommended for discharge on account of delicacy of chest and weakness of back, resulting from a wound received at Inkerman. It does not appear his disability has been aggravated by intemperance. Four months of his service has been spent in the Crimea, whense he was sent home invalided. He is returned as unfit for service. Since his return from the East he has been employed as hospital orderly.’
Daniel was not accompanied by a wife or children on the voyage of the Merchantman – conduct Very Good
