    Sir Harry Gilbert Barling was born at Blythe Court, Newnham-on-Severn, Gloucestershire on 30th April 1855. He was educated privately and then matriculated at the University of London in 1875 from Queen's College, Birmingham. In October 1875 he entered the medical school attached to St.Bartholomew's Hospital. He won a scholarship in anatomy and phyiology, the Kirkes gold medal in clinical medicine, the Brackenbury surgical scholarship, and was House Surgeon from 1st October 1879 to 30th September 1880. He then became pathologist to the Birmingham General Hospital, where he was successively Resident Surgical Officer, Assistant Surgeon (1885), Surgeon from 1891-1915, Consulting Surgeon (1915-40) and President of the Hospital Board from 1925. He was chairman of the Birmingham Committee of the Hospital Sunday Fund, of the Birmingham Hospitals Council, of the Hospitals Council of the Amalgamated Orthopaedic Hospital and Cripples Union. He taught almost continuously throughout his professional life at the Birmingham Medical School. In 1937 he received from the university the honorary degree of Doctor of Laws. At the Royal College of Surgeons of England he served as a member of the Council from 1904 to 1912, and on the General Medical Council he represented Birmingham University. He joined the Territorial Force on the 3rd July 1908 with a commission as Lieutenant Colonel, R.A.M.C., and was called up for service in August 1914 when he was posted as Consulting Surgeon to the Southern Command. On the 18th June 1917 he was promoted to Colonel and in November went to France as Consulting Surgeon to the British Forces on the western front. For his military services he was decorated with the C.B. in 1917 and the C.B.E. in 1919, and in recognition of his civil work at Birmingham he was created a Baronet in 1919. He died on the 27th April 1940.
