Army Pension 1878
« on: Thursday 08 April 21 10:17 BST (UK) »
The person I am researching left the Army in 1878 after 22 years service and was awarded a pension.

The record shows the Board's decision and the amount columns are headed S (shillings) and D (pence)

The strange thing is that the shillings column for him is empty but the pence column shows 25 which in old money would be two shillings and one penny.

Can anybody help me with an explanation please as to how much he was awarded.
