I think that must be the same Tom Bridges who saved the notorious situation at St Quentin on 27 August 1914.

Thanks Maureene, I have quite a number of titles to add to the second release, which hopefully will be at the end of september, to co-incide with the SCS Annual Meeting and the anniversary of the armistice with Bulgaria.

I may have unearthed a few more Serbia-oriented titles in the latest update to the Medicine + Health bibliography - on the other hand I have not been checking them against each other, so you may already have them. But ctrl-F Serbia should flag them up easily.

I can't understand this. All doctors are supposed to be unable to write properly, and I find more medical material about the campaign that anything else!

 

I'll check them out, thank you,

I have at least one edition of Olive King's book in the Healthcare and medicine bibliography, but thank you @MaureenE  for the link to the biographical material, which I'd missed.

Release 2 of the bibliography will be posted on the Salonika Campaign Society Website within a few days. I will post a fresh topic once that has happened, and close this thread. Thanks to everyone who has suggested additional titles. I will be aiming for a further release at a similar date in 2022, so will always be grateful for further suggestions.

Release 2 of the bibliography has now been posted, so I will close this topic, and start a new one.

I won't close the thread because I didn't start it.  I will however start a new topic.
