Griffiths, John Neville (Captain)
Collection relating to the service of Captain John Neville Griffiths, RAMC, British Army, England, France, Belgium. Collection includes letters written by Captain John Neville Griffiths to his brother Guy in Sydney (Major Frederick Guy Griffiths, 14 Australian General Hospital), between August 1914 and November 1917.
This collection of letters contains numerous references to medical procedures and treatments. The letters convey John Neville Griffiths' interest in new ideas in medicine as well as his passion for aeroplanes and flying. Griffiths spent over three years in the Royal Army Medical Corps and his letters give an unusual perspective on military life in general, and life "at the front" in particular.
Biographical note: Captain John Neville Griffiths, Royal Army Medical Corps (British Army) attached 58 Heavy Artillery Group - killed on 30 November 1917, near Bapaume.
