Some time ago whilst going through the attestation papers for Thorneycrofts Mounted Infantry in the Boer War I can across this chap:

Hello,

Are there likely to be any Court Martial or Crown/Magistrates Court papers relating to the attack on Thomas Lockardt? I am only asking because court papers often have character references and statements from officers. There may be more information about Thomas and his military career contained in those papers.

Just realised that there won't be any court papers....under Question 4 on the discharge paper it states something along the lines of, Rough contact with service,..... 'of some members who remain unknown'.

Thomas suffered a fractured skull and the Surgeon describes it as 'rough contact'...with a fracture and a displacement of certain other bones.

It was probably looked upon on as boyish horseplay.

Hi 90th

Q3
This a aftermath condition of Epilepsy
induced by an injury to the head incurred
at the hands of soldiers of the Colchester Garrison
who waylaid and maliciously ill-treated
him without provocation and notice
causing a fracture of the orbit and displacement
of certain other bones.

Q4
Having problems with this one myself 90th.

Hi Waterloo50

I have a ref to the following with regards to the above.
"The Court of inquiry found the injury had taken place when absent when not on duty - he had broken out of barracks."
(Regimental Journal, 1938)

Question 4 reads.

"It cannot be said to have been caused by Military Service though contracted in the Service and at the hands of some of its members who remain unknown."
