First World War Surgeons Recognized Through Rememberance Project
Accomplished physician and Dal Med faculty, Dr. Ron Stewart, recently unveiled a rememberance project 12 years in the making. The project recognizes the commitment and sacrifice of two former Glace Bay surgeons: Dr. Kenneth Angus MacCuish and Dr. Walter Leonard MacLean.
“There is no doubt in my mind many of my family would have been treated by these two surgeons.”
Ronald McInnis is an advanced care paramedic with EHS who assisted with the project. McInnis spoke of the sacrifice and bravery of these surgeons during the Battle of Passchendaele in 1917, which endured the worst rains in 30 years, and the ground was covered with millions of artillery shells.
“It inspires us to continue as a society and as democratic Canadians, to come together to recognize and it’s also the opportunity to celebrate the achievements of the sons of this community who have served this country so nobly and at the same time gave the ultimate extreme sacrifice.”
Learn about Dr, Stewart's genorous gft to the Dalhousie Medical Research Foundation in Continuing a Generous Legacy.
