Banbury, Richard Albert

In Sept. 1940 as the result of an air raid Dr. R. A. Banbury, of 181 Grove Lane, Denmark Hill SE5, came to St. Thomas’s in 1907. Together with his only daughter and his secretary, he was killed by enemy action in September. An unassuming, gentle creature, with a keen sense of humour, he overcame the handicap of deafness, and in spite of it built up an extensive general practice. He was the ideal general practitioner, who kept himself up to date clinically and never spared himself on behalf of his patients. He was a staunch friend and a loyal colleague. To his widow, who in a moment lost her all, we extend our respectful sympathy. St. Thomas’s Gazette Sept. 1940.
