age 25
buried st.matthews churchyard,stretford on 14-2-16

the doctor stated on his discharge that joseph was feeble minded and had been like this since childhood,he cannot carry out duties as a soldier and prefers solitude
joseph had been a territorial for six years and only missed one annual camp,hardly the MO of a man who cant function as a soldier and being in annual camp with thousands of soldiers isn't for someone who wants solitude,i think the doctor was the feeble minded one

The Pension Record has no evidence to corroborate that Joseph King contracted Pneumonia in service. As a short term medical condition this doesn't support the Pension Card claim.  Hold Relationship not proven*
