Retired orthopaedic surgeon, Tom Scotland, has co-authored a biography entitled ‘HENRY GRAY, Surgeon of the Great War’.     Henry Gray was an Aberdonian surgeon, regarded as one of the best if not the best “hands on ” military surgeon to serve his country during the Great War; he was directly responsible for saving thousands of lives as a result of his innovative surgical skills and methods.     The book will be launched on 4th. December at 4:00 pm in the Medical Chirurgical Hall at the University of Aberdeen and copies of this limited edition publication may be purchased through the website www.capercailliebooks.co.uk

Lord Dean of Guild Colin Taylor is pleased to highlight and inform of another publication, this one is by one of our Assessors, Graham Shanks

Titled ‘Yet Another Glorious Day’, it is the transcript of the 1915 diary of an Aberdeen University student (Alexander Rule from Huntly) who was a member of U Company, 4th Battalion, The Gordon Highlanders. When war was declared, Rule volunteered for service overseas and this book enhances the transcript.  The book is available at The Gordon Highlanders Museum and Graham will be signing copies there on 5th December.  It is also available through eBay, Amazon or by contacting the Author on gjshanks@btinternet.com.
