Re: Cox and Fitzmaurice
In Response To: Cox and Fitzmaurice ()

Rory,
my understanding was that the money essentially equated to one year's paid leave, which is what Fitzmaurice took. Simmons, I believe, suggests that he took a few weeks off in Lisbon to recuperate after his Coa wound AND got the money. For the harder up ones the blood money was therefore an extra earner. Certainly also there were payments for permnanent losses such as limbs or eyes.
regards
Mark
