After leaving King’s College School in Wimbledon in 1942, "Jack" joined the Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers (REME)
and served for the rest of the war. He then went to The London Hospital, and after a series of house jobs he went into general
practice. After a year he decided to specialise in anaesthetics, working initially in Reading and later becoming a senior
registrar at Barts. He came to Mansfield in 1963 as a consultant. While there he participated in setting up an intensive care
unit at the general hospital.
He was a keen gardener and amateur engineer. He retired in 1989 and developed a severe stroke in 2001 which left him aphasic
for the rest of his days.
He is survived by his wife and daughter. [D Davies]
