Biography of Captain Alexander Jamieson

Alexander Jamieson was born on 16th August 1881, eldest son of Alexander Jamieson MB LRCSE. He graduated MB ChB in 1904 and worked as a physician and surgeon. He also represented Hutchesontown Ward in Glasgow Town Council for two years.

When war broke out in 1914 he joined the Royal Army Medical Corps and worked on hospital duty at Le Havre but so great was the strain that in July 1915 he was invalided home.

After the war Alexander was appointed Commander of the West of Scotland Divisional Council of the Comrades of the Great War (later amalgamated into the British Legion). The purpose of this organisation was to give support and advice to discharged soldiers, sailors and their dependents.

Alexander was a governor of Hutcheson’s Hospital and a member of the Incorporation of Cordiners of the Trades House of Glasgow. His medical expertise was much in demand from various Glasgow Corporation Departments.

He died on 6th April 1950 and was survived by his wife, five sons and two daughters.
