Episode 6: 'Our Doctor and Friend'. The last in our 'Searching for the Grey Lady' podcast series.

In this episode we feature a story discovered in the 'Hendon and Finchley Times' June 23rd, 1916 by Laura McGuinness, Head of History at Claremont High School Academy and a "forever grateful former patient at the RNOH", who volunteered her support for our Podcast project. 

In this Episode we hear how the communities of Edgware and Little Stanmore enthusiastically welcome and celebrate popular local doctor Dr Findlater when he returns from the Front Line on leave in June 1916, after being awarded the D.S.O. (Distinguished Service Order) whilst serving in the Royal Army Medical Corps during devastating campaigns in Gallipoli.
