Hi All,

I am interested in the WW1 journey of this Scots doctor. He is said to have served in France, Greece and then finally in Russia! For me it would be a valuable aside to my main reason for researching him, that being, his time in Rangoon Jail in WW2, as the senior M.O. to the POW's. It is possible that he may have treated my grandfather back then, before his death in June 1943.

Any help or information regarding Captain MacKenzie would be much appreciated. I will attach his MIC below.

Many thanks.

Bamboo.

Hi Steve,

Many thanks for your kind efforts. MacKenzie was a massive figure in Rangoon Jail in WW2. I am sure without him and the other medics, many more Allied servicemen would have perished in that jail. He himself, being 55 years old by the time of liberation, was fortunate to survive.

Best wishes.

Bamboo.
