Alfred Edward Hawkes worked at the Homeopathic Hospital at Neuilly sur Seine in France, as Chief of Medicine during WW1, from 1914 to 1916.
Dr Hawkes worked closely with Frantz Hartmann (a World renowned Paris surgeon) in setting up a highly organized surgical installation. Surgical cases totaled one hundred and twenty two, many fractures, and shrapnel fragments from the fighting lines.
‘Among the eighty medical cases, ten of typhoid were treated, and none died. Chronic diseases of the alimentary canal there were eight. Cases of respiratory affliction amounted to forty. The remainder of medical cases were of heart disease, renal disease, and acute and chronic rheumatism.’
