Yes, the Second widow can get a family pension of a late army officer as she doesn't have a child and the first wife was also childless. The Armed Forces Tribunal has ruled that childless widows of army men who remarry and continue to depend on the family pension as their primary source of sustenance, cannot be denied the benefit.
