dc.description.abstractThis work, especially from the point of view Of complete Medical control of the Sanitation and health of the School, and ultimately a close personal supervision of the School Athletics became my chief (2) interest, and occupied the larger proportion of my energies until the outbreak of War.en
dc.description.abstractIt had been my intention to offer as my THESIS a record of this work during a period of twelve years, especially in relation to the pubertal cardiac development of these boys, and in August 1914 my data were almost complete, but an absence of nearly six years with the consequent loss of the post, and of many of records have rendered this impossible, and therefore I now present this record of my War Service in its place.en
dc.description.abstractFor some years before 1914 I had taken an active interest in Auxiliary Military affairs, both Volunteer and Territorial, and was consequently mobilised on August 5th of that year with the Territorial Force in my then rank of Surgeon- Captain in the 2nd South Midland Brigade, R.F.A. In this Unit, however after a weeks strenuous work, the return of the Surgeon-Major rendered me supernumerary, and I was therefore ordered to assist my former Commanding Officer in raising the Second Line of the Brigade. This feat we accomplished, to the astonishment of Authority in thirteen days, by the simple expedient of attesting and Medically examining all the volunteers from the audiences at our recruiting meetings before their easily aroused enthusiasm had been allowed time to cool.en
dc.description.abstractIn this new formation I worked for some months, adding at the Colonel''s request many other Military and Administrative duties to those of my immediate profession, and it was while here that I was offered and accepted the Command of the 2/1st South Mid-Land Field Ambulance, an unruly and partly mutinous Unit which had been sadly neglected and was still as untrained as it was undisciplined.en
dc.description.abstractMy THESIS consists of an account of our work together, and for the convenience of the reader it is divided under the following heads which narrate our experiences, illustrate our work, and seek to show, hat where our methods transgressed the narrow confines f Official Medical sanction and approval, the violation was both conscious and deliberate, and that it was n the end justified by its results.en
