Description
“A native educated boy with his kiddie – an amputation case that did well.” Portrait of an indigenous man, on crutches, and his young son. Lt. Irvine is recording some of the symptoms and patients treated at the carrier hospital at Dodoma. ❧ The image is from an album chronicling the war time experiences of Archibald Clive Irvine (1893-1974) in German East Africa and Portuguese East Africa with the Royal Army Medical Corps. During this time he would meet Dr John W Arthur which in turn would lead to his missionary work at Chogoria in Kenya.
