UKNIWM Ref 54483

Located in the Elder Memorial Chapel in Glasgow Western Infirmary at OS Map Ref NS 563 666.

The infirmary is scheduled for redevelopment in 2013 and it seems unlikely that the chapel will survive so the future of this memorial is yet to be decided.

He entered the Army in 1909 after appointments in several hospitals including the Brook Fever Hospital London. At army medical college he excelled gaining several prizes including the Prize of First Order of Merit. He was promoted to Captain in 1912 and started his research on Trypanosomiasis with Sir William Leishman. He published extensively in medical journals on sleeping sickness its origin and treatment. When war broke out in 1914 he volunteered for active service and became the regimental medical officer for the 1st Kings Royal Rifle Corps with the BEF. For gallant conduct under fire between 21 and 30 August he was awarded the Croix de Chevalier of the French Legion of Honour and mentioned in despatches. On 19th and 20th September his actions resulted in him gaining the V.C and his death. Severely wounded while in the trenches he stopped the bleeding in his own nearly severed leg and continued despite the pain to tend to the wounded sacrificing his own chance of survival to increase theirs. When finally carried to the rear it was too late and died of his wounds on 25th September 1914 aged 31.

John Maitland Forsyth
From Glasgow University Roll of Honour
Captain (Temp Comm) John Maitland Forsyth
Rank: Captain (Temp Comm)
Regiment: Royal Army Medical Corps
Degree: MB ChB
Awards: Military Cross and Bar, Military Cross

From The British Medical Journal APRIL 27, 1918

Bar to the Military Cross. (M.C. gazetted 22nd September, 1916)

Temporary Captain John Maitland Forsyth, M.C., R.A.M.C.
He went up to the front line several times to search for and tend
the wounded under heavy shelling and sniping. It was owing to his
tireless energy that the casualties, which were very heavy, were so
well evacuated. His aid post was twice hit by shells, once causing
nine casualties to his bearers.

From the Arbroath Roll of Honour 1914-1918

CAPTAIN DAVID T. C. FREW,

Royal Army Medical Corps, twenty nine years of age, was the son of David Alison Frew, formerly of Arbroath, and of his wife Ann Elizabeth Berrey, 9 Burnbank Terrace, Glasgow. He married Marie Louise Henriette, . daughter of Fernand Lucien Perregaux, M.D., Paris. Dr Frew's work at the Royal Infirmary and the Western Medical School, Glasgow, where he was lecturing in anatomy, kept him from joining the army at once when war broke out. He became a lieutenant in the Royal Army Medical Corps in 1915, and in June of that year was sent to France, where he served as one of the staff of the Twenty-fourth General Field Hospital at Etaples. He afterwards joined the Seventh Field Ambulance at the front in the Ypres salient, and was wounded there. Captain Frew later took over the duties of medical officer to the London Rifle Brigade, and after several months with that corps he had a short leave and rejoined at Aldershot. He died on the 29th of September 1916
