Almond, Hely-Hutchinson George

Born in February 1877, George was the son of Dr Hely-Hutchison Almond, head-master of Loretto School, where he was educated before going to Hertford College, Oxford. He left university to serve with the Imperial Yeomanry in South Africa where he won the Queen’s Medal. He returned and took his BA in 1902, and became a member of the Royal College of Surgeons (Eng) and Licentiate of the Royal College of Physicians (Lond) in 1906. He qualified as an MA BCh (Oxon) in 1908. He was then appointed House Physician at St Bartholomew’s Hospital, as a house surgeon to the West London Hospital, before becoming Pathologist to the Royal Mineral Hospital and the Royal United Hospital, both in Bath. At the outbreak of the World War I he joined the Royal Army Medical Corps, and became a pathologist at a Base Hospital in France. During the great German offensive in 1918 regimental medical officers were urgently needed, and Captain Almond was sent to the 4th Dragoon Guards in the front line. He was killed, together with his colonel and several others, by a bomb on 9th August 1918, at Caix.
