Other Information:

Herbert was educated at the Grammar School, co Antrim; at the Queen’s College, Belfast; and at the Richmond Hospital, Dublin and the Royal University of Ireland, where he graduated M.B., B.Ch and B.A.O. in 1905. He was known for being a keen sportsman, winning many prizes on the track, while at college, and was a member of the XV. He was also an excellent golfer and tennis player. Herbert joined the R.A.M.C. soon afterwards, being gazetted Lieutenant on 29th July 1907, then went to India in 1909. He gained promotion to Captain on 29th January 1911. He was still serving in India when war broke out and proceeded to Egypt, where he was appointed Registrar of No 15 General Hospital. Between 4th July and 22nd November 1917, he acted as Lieutenant Colonel, and was given command of a Field Ambulance. He served with the Egyptian Expeditionary Force in Palestine until he was seriously wounded at Nebi Samevil on 22nd November. After recovering he became attached to the Headquarters of the Desert Mounted Corps, and was appointed acting Major from 21st January to 8th May 1918 and 29th May to 12th October 1918. He was awarded the Distinguished Service Order for gallant and distinguished service in the field. He died at the English Hospital, Damascus of pneumonia, following malignant malaria. A brother officer wrote: “He was held in high esteem by all with whom he came in contact, and his loss was very deeply regretted.” Herbert was the second son of Thomas and Mary (daughter of John McFaul of Glenarm, co Antrim) Carson of The Knowe, Larne, co Antrim.
