This quotation from the biography of Lawrence Bruce ROBERTSON highlights the contributions of numerous men and women who worked tirelessly to save the lives of countless soldiers:

“Indirect blood transfusion, which he had learned in New York and applied in Toronto, helped save thousands of patients in military hospitals at the front. Robertson was the pioneer who introduced the technique to the British army’s medical personnel, and through former colleagues also on military service, to other Canadian hospitals overseas.”
