Ricketts, James Stuart

Deaths of Sons of Medical Men: Ricketts, James Stuart, Second Lieutenant, R.F.A., died on October 5th in a French General Hospital from wounds received in action on August 29th, eldest son of the late Dr. T. F. Ricketts, in his twenty fourth year. He was educated at Arundel, and passed into Woolwich with a view to joining the Royal Engineers, but was prevented from doing so by illness. He then became a medical student at King's College. Having recovered his health, he volunteered for service in the air corps, but, failing to pass the final health standard, he took a cadet nominationship from his old school, and obtained his commission early this year. He proceeded to the front in early summer. British Medical Journal Oct. 26, 1918
