New Zealand Medical Services in Middle East and Italy

Death of Colonel F. M. Spencer

Death of Colonel F. M. Spencer

The New Zealand Medical Corps suffered a grievous loss on 12 June 1943, when Colonel Spencer, who had been a most capable and popular commander of 2 General Hospital since its formation, died from typhus fever while on a visit to 3 General Hospital at Tripoli. His enthusiasm and earnestness of endeavour were of inestimable value to the Corps. Colonel H. K. Christie was appointed CO 2 General Hospital in his stead.
