Wiki: "Sir George Henry Makins GCMG CB FRCS (3 November 1853 - 2 November 1933) was an English surgeon.

He was born in St Albans, Hertfordshire, the son of George Hogarth Makins, MRCS, and educated at The King's School, Gloucester, St Thomas' Hospital and Halle, Vienna.

He was appointed resident Assistant Surgeon at St Thomas' Hospital (1880-85), then Surgical Registrar (1885-87), Assistant Surgeon (1888-1898) and full Surgeon (1898-1913). He was also Assistant Surgeon at the Evelina Hospital for Sick Children (the forerunner of Evelina Children's Hospital).

During wartime Makins was a Consulting Surgeon to the South African Field Force, 1899-1900 and again a Consulting Surgeon, alongside Sir Anthony Bowlby, during the First World War, 1914-18. He spent much of the latter conflict in France, working in hospitals in Paris and Boulogne before taking over the supervision of new hospitals at Camiers and √Čtaples, where he established a research centre to trial new methods of wound treatment.

He was a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons, gave the Bradshaw Lecture in 1913, the Hunterian Oration in 1917 and served as President from 1917 to 1919. He was awarded CB in 1900, GCMG in 1918 and KCMG in 1915]"
