Bouic, Andre

Entered Guy's as a medical Student in 1914. Having passed the 2nd Conjoint in the early part of 1916 he joined the forces. He was killed in a flying accident while holding the rank of Lieut. in the Royal Flying Corps.

All those who have known him must feel deeply grieved at his death. He passed his second Conjoint at the beginning of last year, and though he was perfectly justified in staying at the hospital, he felt it his absolute duty to join the forces. He did so, leaving behind great affection above all his fiance, to whom he had only a few days previously become engaged. His sense of duty and uprightness was so great that once he had made up his mind he never hesitated. No one who knew him could fail to appreciate his most charming and attractive personality. His brilliant intellect combined with his devotion to his friends made him a great favourite wherever he happened to be.

He died gloriously, serving his country in a manner becoming to his generous nature. We can only wish he could see how his memory is dear to all he left. Guy's Hospital Reports Vol.LXX, War Memorial Number
