In 1866 John Waters (355@9d) applied to have his pension restored to him with arrears as he said he went to Victoria to have medical treatment for his eyes. The Secretary of State for War replied 26th November 1866 that he could see no reason why his pension should not be reinstated although to claim arrears he must produce certificates in support of his claim.
