I agree that the revised parameters would reject this case due to the absence of 'military records' to show TB was due to service - even though the pension was granted on this basis.  We could revisitt some of these cases in future, rather than face rejection now.

No, not convinced there is enough evidence for a successful case.

Albert Cayton's commemoration was rejected today.

Harold Hobson's commemoration was rejected today.  I have no explanation why. Maybe the panel had crispies for breakfast rather than cornflakes. Bloody nonsense!
