"1879—1924 An Army pension has come J. Gleeson, a Cardiff warrior, 45 years later than it should have done. Gleeson fought with the Connaught Rangers through the Zulu War of 1879, was wounded, and later discharged unfit, but without pension. Recently Major Shannons, Cardiff secretary of the British Legion, learnt the case, got into touch with the Commissioners of Royal Hospital, Chelsea, and after mass of correspondence, succeeded in getting Gleeson, who is now 76, special campaign pension of 10s. week for the remainder of his life."

Daily Herald - Saturday 31 May 1924

Duttons p306. There are two J Gleesons 1493 and 1379 both with 1879 clasp in the 88th, none in the 94th thought there is a D Gleeson 65B/2247 1879 clasp

1379 was born 1859 and enlisted on the 8th August 1877 in the 88th Regiment.
Embarked for India aboard the Malabar on 14/12/1880

In 1884 there is a J Gleeson still shown 1st Connaught Rangers.

"46 YEARS WAIT FOR PENSION John Gleeson, an old Cardiff soldier, has just been notified that he is to receive a weekly 10s. pension for wounds received in the Zulu War 1878."
Portsmouth Evening News - Saturday 31 May 1924

"John Gleeson, aged seventy-six, of Milicent-street, Cardiff, has just learned that the Commissioners of the Royal Hospital, Chelsea, have granted him a special campaign pension of 10s for wounds received more than forty-five years ago. Gleeson served in the Zulu War in the 88th Connaught Rangers"
Londonderry Sentinel - Tuesday 03 June 1924
