Bruce Report
Special Board of Inquiry
Issue Date: 1917
Abstract: In 1916, Herbert Alexander Bruce, inspector-general of the Canadian Army Medical Corps (C.A.M.C.) investigated medical practices in the CEF and issued a Report on the Canadian Army Medical Service which urged a complete reogranization of the medical corps. This report was disowned by Borden's Government, and was one of the issues used to force the retirement of Sir Sam Hughes, Minister of Militia. Bruce was dismissed from his duties, and a subsequent panel was drawn up that had significantly different conclusions. Some of Bruce's recommendations were eventually implemented, and in 1919 he published Politics and the Canadian Army Medical Corps, criticizing the government for its actions. These accounts are from The Times of London, during the period of October 6, 1916 and January 3, 1917.
