SPANISH MEDICAL AID COMMITTEE.
SECOND BULLETIN November 1936.
1. Extract from Report of K.W.C. Sinclair - Loutit, Administrator of the British Hospital at Granen
Since we arrived here, the British Medical Unit has dealt with some 1200 persons, and its Ambulances have travelled in round figures some 10,000 miles.
One of our recent cases was a Moor who was brought here in a desperate state. So far as we could gather he had been thrown from a horse four days previously and had lain in the open with a fractured leg until he was found and brought here for examination. It was discovered that the man's leg would have to be amputated. He was, of course, a prisoner, but the local Commander agreed that the man should be given every possible care here and should then be conveyed to the base hospital. However, shock and exposure had been too much for him and he died some hours after the operation.
Comments for speakers.
This message from the Administrator of the Hospital at Granen should once for all silence the lie that has been put about to the effect that the British Medical Aid Committee is not interested in collecting money for the purpose of saving the lives of any but loyalist troops.
