Pensions Aspect

Malaria cases of the Second World War have been no problem to the War Pensions Board. After the First World War there were many soldiers on pension for ‘D.A.H. following malaria’ or ‘Debility following malaria’, and who eventually became permanent pensioners for neurasthenia. This type of case was not seen after the Second World War, and there were soon no pensioners for malaria. Ex-servicemen ceased to have any recurrent attacks of malaria within three years of returning to New Zealand, the great majority within one year.
