10 Jul
Michael Crumplin is a retired consultant surgeon and his only involvement in teaching was in training and examining young medical students and aspiring surgeons during their careers. As an interest long before retirement, he became involved in the period of European and transatlantic revolution and conflict (1760-1820), which is a timescale full of fascinating events and divertissements. His interest in social and military affairs of these times blended well with the evolution of healthcare in the armed services and in civilian life, which pre-dated the era of anaesthesia and particularly, antisepsis.
