Thomas Notman

Lieutenant Thomas Notman was born in Berwickshire but spent most of his life in Glasgow where he attended Woodside Secondary School. He graduated MA from the University in 1937 and entered Anderson College, initially studying Dentistry before changing to Medicine and obtaining the Scottish triple qualification in 1943.

After an appointment at Ayr County Hospital, Notman joined the RAMC and was posted to North Africa and then to Italy. He was wounded at Cassino while treating casualties under heavy enemy fire. For his courage he was awarded the MC but he did not live to learn of this. On 2 July 1944, shortly after returning to his battalion, he was fatally wounded at Lake Trasimeno.
