Ministry of Pensions,
11th January 1919
With reference to your letter of the 6th July last, Number 21203/18, I am directed by the Minister of Pensions to acquaint you, for the information of the Lords Commissioners of His Majesty’s Treasury, that amongst the cases transferred by the War Office to this Department under the terms of that letter was that [of Miss Ethel M. Jones, a nursing sister of the Almeric Paget Military Massage Corps.] the engagement of this lady was terminated in November 1917 on account of a disability attributable to her military service, and she was awarded by the War Office a temporary pension in accordance wit the terms of the Royal Warrant of the 1st August, 1917, on the authority of the third paragraph of your letter of the 26th May, 1915, her duties as a medical auxiliary being similar to those of a member of Queen Alexandra's Imperial Nursing Service. The pension was subsequently renewed by this Department, it having been overlooked that the award was not covered by the terms of your letter of the 6th July.
I have, therefore, to ask that you will be good enough to obtain their Lordships' covering sanction for the award already made and their sanction also [for the continuance of the pension for so long as the pensioner’s disability renders her eligible therefore.]
