INSPECTOR-GENERAL HENBY MACDONNEL, G.B., who has been placed on the retired list, joined the Royal Naval Medical Service in 1861. He attained his pre- sent rank after 38 years of effective and assiduous service. He will be recalled as having been Fleet Surgeon of the Invincible at the bombardment of Alexandria in 1882.

He wrote his own epitaph, which sets forth the simple facts that. he was a schoolmaster born at Bethenschoss in 1817, and that he died at Koeffen in 1899
