Name/Title

Certificate, Disability Pension

About this object

This certificate entitled Robert Douglas (Doug) Story to a military disability pension for four months at £4 6 shillings and 8 pence after his discharge from service in 1918. Robert was gassed at the Battle of Messines in 1917, and suffered health problems for the rest of his life as a consequence.

Robert's father died in 1918 and upon Doug's return to New Zealand he took over the operations of the family station, Venlaw. Fortunately, the family had always collectively owned the property with the oldest son in charge, and this meant that three of Doug’s siblings were around to help him. Despite his health problems, Doug worked on his family farm until his death in 1950.
