Fire brigade - Fireman. In the instant case, where a medical board had quashed a decision refusing an application for a pension, and injury award, on the basis of the interested party's incapacity as a fire fighter, which had been occasioned during the course of his employment with the claimant, the decision would be remitted to the same tribunal for a reconsideration. The board in its reasons had not properly investigated the issue of causation, had not set out the test of causation which it had applied, nor had it made reference to any standard of proof.
