    Brigadier George Frederick Allison, M.C., late Royal Army Medical Corps, was made a Knight Commander of the Order of the British Empire.

    Brigadier Allison was Deputy Director of Medical Services from December 1940. When he took over his appointment there was one hospital in the area. There are now eleven hospitals, three convalescent depots and five prisoner of war hospitals. He supervised the erection and organisation of all these, and with his wide medical experience, his advice and instructions were invaluable to less experienced Officers Commanding Hospitals.

    During operations in the Western Desert, Brigadier Allison was very fully occupied in organising the reception and evacuation of casualties, and it was largely due to his powers of organisation and the high standard of his work that these receptions and evacuations were carried out so smoothly.

    Brigadier Allison comes from Monaghan.
