Brogden, Ingram Richard Rhodes

It was with great regret that all his friends heard that Lt. I. R. R. Brogden was reported by the War Office as "missing, believed drowned" on April 15th. He had been in the R.A.M.C, for some six weeks only and was on his way to Egypt.

Lt. Brogden was 24 years of age and was educated at Marlborough, Clare College, Cambridge, and Guy's. He entered the wards here in January 1914, and after doing the usual ward appointments, was appointedOut-Patient Officer and later House-Surgeon to Mr Dunn. On completing the latter appointment he entered the R.A.M.C., and as he was passed fit for garrison services abroad was being sent to Egypt where he met his death. No details have up to the present been heard, but it is thought that he was probably lost on the Arcadian.

Though never a prominent figure in athletics owing to an attack of rheumatic fever, Lt Brogden was one of the best known and most popular men at Guy's. His invariable cheerfulness and good temper made him universally liked and respected by everyone who met him both in his earlier days as a student and later as House-Surgeon. In the latter capacity he showed that he possessed a very sound surgical judgement and considerable skill in surgical technique. Though often not in the best of health he stuck to his work, and it was only with the greatest difficulty that he could be persuaded to take a rest even when he most obviously needed it. In his long career here we doubt anyone has ever found to say a word against him, a record not attained by many who have passed three years at the Hospital.

He was the only son of an old Guy's man and we wish to express our deepest sympathy.
