After being given a month’s leave to recuperate from the non-stop traumas and massive workloads encountered on the Western Front, Douglas of course was kept busy with lighter duties, but no time off. He was examined by General Culling (could this be Surgeon-General John Chislet Culling M.R.C.S., A.M.S., who as recently as January 5th 1917 had been made a Knight of Grace in the Order of St John of Jerusalem in England?) and a Captain Wilson.

“On March 13th I had another Medical Board at Edinburgh Castle, and was passed fit for general service (after my month’s rest!). ¬†General Culling and Major Wilson boarded me.”
