HC Deb 09 November 1920 vol 134 cc1013-4
66. Mr. MILLS

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether or no a list of the surgeons on board His Majesty's hospital ship "Soudan" early in 1915 can be furnished; and, if so, how many have survived the period of war?


The answer is rather long, and, if the hon. Member will allow me, I will have it published in the OFFICIAL REPORT.

The following in the answer supplied:

The names of the surgeons serving in H.M.S. "Soudan" from the 1st January to 1st July, 1915, are as follows:—

Fleet Surgeon G. T. Collingwood, M.V.O., R.N.

Staff Surgeon J. K. Murphy, M.D., F.R.C.S., R.N.V.R.

Staff Surgeon H. Reah, M.B., R.N.V.R.

Surgeon C. J. G. Taylor, R.N.V.R.

Surgeon W. A. Milne, M.D., R.N.V.R.

Staff Surgeon (Temporary) A. Edmunds, M.B., B.S., F.R.C.S., R.N.

Surgeon (Reserve) C. F. Bainbridge, M.B., R.N.

Temporary Surgeon Lieutenant H. Wetherbee, R.N.

Temporary Surgeon Lieutenant W. H. Watson Cheyne, R.N.

Temporary Surgeon Lieutenant A. McMillan, R.N.

Temporary Surgeon Lieutenant J. F. Pace, M.B., R.N.

Dental Surgeon R. W. List, L.D.S.

Of these officers, Staff Surgeon J. K. Murphy. R.N.V.R., died on the 13th September, 1916, from heart failure. The remainder are still living, as far as is known in the Admiralty.
