Temporary Gentlemen Surgeons

Wartime Experiences of
Temporary Gentlemen Surgeons

The NAA Naval historian, Dr John Carroll PhD, has researched the significant work of a number of Naval Surgeons who served during WW2.

Because of WEM magazine size constraint, the story of Dr Allan Campbell was published in the 2023 Blue (Spring) edition of the White Ensign Magazine (WEM).

The contribution of the other surgeons was also of great significance and in recognition of their humanitarian work, the WEM has requested that their stories be published on the NAA website. The WEM editorial committee hopes that the stories are of great interest to the readers of the NAA website.

Dr Carroll's full article and the stories of the individual Surgeons researched is available at the following links.
