The death occurred

Dr. Gunson was born at Angas

1856.   The late

work earned him the additional degrees of M.R.C.S. and   L.R.C.P.  
Dr. Gunson was one of the first

B.M.A. congress held in Adelaide in 1905.
In recognition of his work with the St. John Ambu- lance Association, he was made an offi- cer of the order of

Gunson was an active member of the Royal
Automobile Association of South Australia, which benefited from his services as vice-president and a committeeman. He

Dr. Gun- ons was an honorary
life member of the R.A.A. He was one of the earliest   members of the Royal Adelaide Golf   Club. He rowed in the
University crew in his younger days, and also was keen on tennis.
Dr. Gunson is survived by a widow, who, before her marriage in 1908, was Miss Annie Elizabeth

Morphett, and three sons and three daughters—
