Indian Mutiny Relief Fund. This fund, collected for the relief of victims of the Indian Mutiny of 1857 had paid out upwards of £400,000 by 1874. The residue of the fund was then paid into Court and a Scheme for its future regulation obtained. Approval was asked in 1897 for payment of a pension to Captain G.J. Hamilton, the retiring secretary. It was proposed in 1902 to transfer the balance of the fund to the Patriotic Fund Commissioners.
