7. Where an officer leaves orphan children in the care of any of the persons mentioned in Section 5 of this schedule who is dependent on him, the total allowances payable in respect of such person and such children (other than the allowance, if any, payable under Section 4) shall not exceed the total allowances which, if the officer had left a widow, would have been payable under sections 1 and 2 during the widowhood of such widow.
8. No allowance shall be payable to any person under the foregoing provisions of this Schedule unless such person was, at the date of the death of the officer in respect of whom such allowance is claimed, wholly dependent on such officer.
9. Where an officer leaves persons partially dependent on him, such persons shall not be granted any allowances, but in necessitous cases or other special circumstances a gratuity or gratuities may be granted to all or any such partial dependants. The total amount of the gratuities granted under this section in respect of any one officer shall not exceed the sum of £150.
10. Whenever any dependant was wholly or partially dependent on more than one deceased person, such dependant shall not receive, in respect of such deceased person, allowances or gratuities exceeding in the whole the maximum allowance which could be granted to such dependant under this Schedule in respect of any one of such deceased persons. In this clause the expression “deceased person” includes a deceased officer as well as a deceased soldier.
