    British Delegate to the Ottoman Board of Health.

    Dr Frank Gerard Clemow was born in 1863 and was educated at the Royal Institution School, Liverpool, and at Edinburgh University, where he graduated M.B., C.M. in 1885, proceeded M.D. in 1892, soon afterwards obtaining the Cambridge D.P.H.. His earliest appointment, held for ten years, was that of medical officer to the British Seamen's Hospital, Krondstadt, Russia, where he gained first-hand experience of a cholera epedemic. He then engaged for a short time in plague work in India, and in 1900 was appointed physician to the Embassy and British delegate on the International Board of Health at Constantinople, positions which he held for 22 years, during which time he also served as British delegate to the international sanitary conferences in Paris. He was in charge of the British Red Cross Missions to Montenegro in 1915-16, and to Romania and Russia, 1916-17; and director of he Serbian Relief Fund in Serbia, 1918-19. Dr Clemow was also a member of the British delegation at the lasuanne Peace Conference in 1923, and British representative of successive international commissions to inquire into the sanitary defences of the coasts of Asia Minor, Syria, and Arabia, of the Hedjaz Railway, of Mesopotamia, and the Turco-Persian frontier. For his services to hygiene and the relief of suffering he was created C.M.G. in 1914, and he also held the Montenegrin Order of Danilo I and Red Cross Medal, and the Russian Order of St.Anne, 2nd Class with swords. He died on 25.2.1928.

    His publications included The Cholera Epidemic in 1892 in the Russian Empire, a book Geography of Disease, published in 1903, the section on medical geography in Allbut and Rolleston's System of Medicine, and various papers on epidemiological subjects published in the Lancet, the Times, Blackwood's Magazine, and the Geographical Journal. He had been a member of the British Medical Association for 38 years, and had served as honorary secretary for the Near East of the Epidemiological Section of the Royal Society of Medicine.

    His MIC notes him as serving with the Serbian Relief Fund and entitled to BWM and Victory pair only.
