Individual Stories – WW2 - Part 4
Paul was the son of Coln Rowntree and after education at Oakham joined St.Bartholemews Hospital in the City of London for training as a doctor at the age of 17. After two year war broke out and by being prepared to work in a local First Aid Post 2 floor under an office block he got free board and lodging. It was at the First Aid Post that he met his wife to be Gwen Marshall who had trained as a Red Cross Nurse. They married in June 1942 and by the time of their first born, Paul had qualified as a Doctor and had German Measles and then severe depression. The depression cut short his ambition of going into the Navy as a Doctor and so after a time in General Practice at Enfield during the time of the flying bombs he move to a single handed practice at 23 Blossom Street, York in 1945.
