Further InformationPrivate Murren received a wound at Goodasepore on 12 July 1857 while on duty after the mutineers of 46th Native Infantry. The musket ball struck the leg at an oblique direction fracturing the tibia into a great number of pieces. The wound is still discharging and pieces of bone occasionally come away – his health has suffered in consequence together with long confinement- not aggravated by vice or intemperance invalided to England
