Discharge due to lung disease.Richard Pimlott left Victoria (presumably Melbourne) by the ship Seaman’s Pride in May 1862 bound for British Columbia Canada. He must have disembarked, en route, in Sydney New South Wales and joined the mounted police force in March 1863. He suffered injury after a fall from a horse in April injuring his back, however, after a police inquest, his death was found to be from natural causes.
