Peter,

I don't think that there was any question of stopping an officer's pay while they were recovering from a wound (or sickness) received in the line of duty - sounds like fair grounds for a mutiny even to propose it! And the references I've seen to it are consistent which Mark's description of an extra bonus. Whether it was only the hard-up officers who returned to duty as soon as they could I rather doubt though; and I don't know if there was an automatic entitlement for a year's leave. (Think how many officers of the 95th would have been required if they each took a year's leave whenever they were (seriously) wounded).
