D R TURNER IN PALESTINE. I HOMEWARD JOURNEY I BROKEN. Dr. Turner, the genial medical practitioner of Gilfach and Bargoed, has had a variety of experiences during his service abroad with tho R.A.M.C. Readers will be glad to learn of his welfare. He is at present in Palestine. It will be remembered that he served for a considerable time in India. He left the Welsh General Hospital, Deolali (India) to report at Bombay, India, for em- barkation for England, on March 4th. He cabled, under date March 20th, to Mrs Turner, saying leaving Bombay." On April 19th, he cabled Mrs Turner delayed, Alexandria," while on the 21st April, a letter was received stating they had had a very exciting trip from Bombay, and that they were taken off the ship in Egypt. Dr. Turner had been doing temporary duty at the Hospital, Mustapha Camp and was hourly waiting orders to proceed for home. On May 10th, however, a letter was sent to Eng- land by a doctor over 41-and thus described as lucky "âstating that on May 22nd the eight doctors from the Welsh Hospital had orders to embark on a certain transport for England. They all packed up and got on the ship. At the last moment, however, they received a message ordering them to report immediately. Age" was the controlling factor here, and the fiat was issued II under 41 can't go; go to Mustapha Camp and report for duty." Appeals were of no avail, as there was a big do on in Palestine, whither they were expecting orders to proceed-in fact, some of the doctors had gone there already. So, while the gallant doctor is nearer home, he is still 'far away. The delay, however, may not be long. One thing is sure, Dr. Turner will be heartily welcomed by his host of friends when he returns.
