ABSTRACT

This work contains in detail the work of the Portland Hospital, which was the first of the civilian hospitals to be equipped and sent to South Africa after the opening of the Boer war. It was probably the first voluntary hospital attached to the British army at the front. After describing the personnel, equipment and interior economy of the hospital, the authors describe the work done by this hospital and its career in the field. The medical work done by the hospital was chiefly in enteric and typhoid fevers; the next most frequent diseases being diarrhea, dysentery and diseases due to exposure. The surgical work of the hospital is described by Mr. Bowlby and Mr. Cuthbert Wallace and deals first with weapons and projectiles, the surgical aspects of modern rifle fire, bullet wounds in general with their characteristics, and then takes up special wounds of the bones, joints and blood
