    "Surgeon Major A.B.Seaman, the Principal Medical Officer of the Force, carried out his duties in a satisfactory manner. His arrangements in the distribution of the field hospital along the line of communication worked well, and considering that a very large number of road coolies, for whom no medical arrangements were made by the civil authorities, were treated and looked after, great credit is due to the officers under him for the good work done."
