Stanley, Cuthbert Arthur

It is with regret that we have to record the death of Dr. C. A. Stanley of the Colonial Medical Service. Dr. Stanley was among those who refused to leave Singapore at the time of the Japanese invasion, and insisted on remaining so that he could tend the sick and wounded. His death, which occurred at Malai Camp, Singapore on December 1, 1943, and news of which has just been received through the International Red Cross, adds yet another name to the steadily growing list of doctors and nurses who gave their lives in order that the sick and wounded entrusted to their care should not suffer. St. Thomas’s Gazette, July 1944
