Footnotes

  • Captain Wallace Hillbrook was the elder son of Mr. and Mrs. J.E. Hillbrook of Sutton, Surrey and was born in 1892. He was educated at Clifton College and Emmanuel College, Cambridge and St. George's Hospital, taking his degrees at the age of 23. He accepted the appointments of House Surgeon and House Physician at St.George's Hospital before leaving for Uganda to take up a position at the Mengo Hospital.

    When in Uganda the call for doctors for the forces led Dr. Hillbrook to undertake more definitive military work and he accepted a commission in the British East Africa Expeditionary Force. He went up with the Congo Carriers Corps, afterwards being in charge of a hospital. From a member of staff at Mengo Hospital his parents learned how highly Capt Hillbrook's services were appreciated by the Military Authorities. His only brother was interned in Holland after Antwerp.

    Capt W. Hillbrook M.R.C.S. (England), L.R.C.P. (Lond) and B.C. (Camb) died on July 22nd 1916 while serving with the British East Africa Expeditionary Force. A message from the Colonial Office states that Capt Hillbrook was buried at Nairobi.
