AENC Snippet - 3 Conan Doyle during the Boer War

In 1900 Arthur Conan Doyle went out to South Africa to work at a field hospital. He did this because he was desperate to serve his country during the Boer War but was considered too old for active service.

In his autobiography and private letters he was rather disparaging about the head surgeon Robert O'Callaghan and his suitability for his position.

Was this justified? I think not....to find out more order now.
