PENSIONS TO OFFICERS. NEW REGULATIONS. The Queen, deeming it expedient to provide in a more equitable manner for the grant of pensions or gratuities to officers who may receive in action wounds of a very severe nature, but not equivalent to I the loss of a limb, has directed that amendments shall be made in the Royal Warrant approved on May 30 of the present year. It is ordered that: An officer who has received in action a bodily injury certified by the regulated military authority to be very severe, though not equivalent to the loss of a limb, may, at the direction of our Secretary of State, be allowed a gratuity of from three to 12 months' full pay of the appointment held by him at the time of the injury. If at or after the expira- tion of the period for which the gratuity has been awarded the injury be certified to be likely to be permanent in its effects, the officer may be granted a temporary pension at half the rates prescribed in the scale laid down. Such pension shall be re- newable from year to year, at the discretion of our Secretary of State, according to subsequent reports of the regulated military authority. If the temporary pension is renewed for five years, and the bodily dis- ability continues, the pension may be converted into a permanent pension'" It is explained that the gratuities include all emoluments of the nature of pay of which the officer was actually in receipt when wounded, except double pay for service on the West Coast of Africa. Allow- ances are excluded.
