Certified Wm W W Humbley, Lt.
I certify that the foregoing Statements are correct, Extracts from the Regimental Records, and the Proceedings of the Regimental Board.
J. Scott, Lieut. Colonel and President
Confirmed by me W. Fendall, Lieutenant-Colonel Commanding
MEDICAL REASON:According to the Surgeon's report annexed it appears that this is a case of disease or disability contracted on duty without being attributed to neglect, design, vice or intemperence and the Regimental Board approves of the opinion of the Surgeon as it is shewn by the proceedings of the Board hereto annexed.
This is to Certify that private Thomas Frederick 4th QO Light Dragoons aged 45 arrived in India with the Regiment 12th May 1822 that he has Inquineal Hernia right side which was caused by his horse rearing and bringing him forcibly against his drum while on duty in the field on the morning of the 24th April last and the affect of which he asserts prevents his riding but does not interfere with foot duties. He is therefore unfit to continue a dragoon.
D. Perston, Surgeon, 4th QO Light Dragoons
Kirkee 23rd October 1837
Opinion of the Principal Medical Officer, at Chatham, May 21 1838. After examination at this General Hospital I am of opinion that Thomas Frederick is unfit for service and is likely to be permanently incapacitated for military cav[alr]y Duty, and I approve of the opinion of the Surgeon.
