A year in the life of Evelyn Wood:
After recovering, he was sent to India, just in time for the Mutiny, While there, in between fighting the sepoys, he suffered from, sunstroke, low fever, facial neuralgia, indigestion and face-ache. He then went on to be attacked by a tiger, fell off a giraffe, putting holes in both his cheeks and mashing his nose, then went on to burn a hole in a cheek with medicine for a toothache, and again suffering with face-ache and deafness. He also suffered from severe intestinal complaints and indigestion. He then galloped his horse into a tree, breaking his collarbone. This all happened in little over a year while in India.
