Further InformationUnfit for continued military service from enlargement and stiffness of the right knee joint, the consequence of arthritic rheumatism for which he was first treated in June 1861, and which was caused by fatigue and exposure in the late Indian Campaign. He served throughout the Crimean War also and his constitution was a good deal impaired by that service.
