Former consultant surgeon Windsor group of hospitals (b 1915; q St Mary's 1940; FRCS) d 14 May 1997. He was appointed consultant in 1954, and because he had had experience at the Hospital for Sick Children, Great Ormond Street, his remit included the paediatric surgery for the district. He developed an extensive practice, which included Windsor Castle and Eton College. Five years' service in the Royal Navy gave him enormous pleasure, and he served in theatres of war from the north Atlantic to the Pacific.

He was devoted to the memory of Lord Nelson and made a large collection of Nelsonian memorabilia. His other interests included gardening and classic cars. He leaves a wife, Julia; four children; and eight grandchildren. [R J Luck]

Consultant pathologist Friarage Hospital, Northallerton 1952-74 (b 1910; q Birmingham 1936; founder MRCPath), d 18 January 1997.

At Friarage Hospital he was singlehanded but developed a broad range of services and established a friendly advisory service for local family doctors, one of the first clinical pathologists to do so.
