Other Information:

Daniel was educated at Omagh Academy, Co. Tyrone and Edinburgh University, qualifying M.B., Ch.B in 1913 and M.D. in 1919. He gained a temporary commission within the R.A.M.C. as temporary Lieutenant on 1st November 1914 and was sent to France with No 13 General Hospital, entering the war on the same day. He was promoted to temporary Captain exactly one year later on 1st November 1915. Daniel was awarded the Military Cross whilst attached as the Medical Officer to the 6th Bn. Gordon Highlanders "For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty. During an attack by his battalion he followed them closely and attended to the wounded in the open under very heavy fire. His fearlessness and gallant conduct throughout the operations was most marked.” He gained the rank of acting Major from 2nd May 1918 - 7th April 1919. During this time he was awarded his 1st Bar to the Military Cross "For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty in evacuating the wounded. With a small ambulance car he went to and fro right up to the firing line, meeting the stretcher - bearers and bringing back wounded as soon as dressed. In spite of the heavy fire he carried on with his well-organised arrangements. Later, whilst looking for a new dressing station, he was captured, but managed to make good his escape. Throughout the operations he displayed great energy, and his work was magnificent." and his 2nd Bar "For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty as liaison medical officer. He constantly kept tough with brigade and battalion headquarters, moving over roads and ground exposed to heavy shelling. His tireless energy, organising ability, and disregard of danger were largely instrumental in the successful clearing of casualties from the line." He was also wounded in October 1918 - reported in the Lancet on 2nd November 1918. Daniel gained a permanent regular army commission as Captain on 1st May 1919 (1st May 1918). He continued to serve after the war and was in Egypt from 1920 - 1925. He then gained the rank of Major on 1st November 1926. From 1929 - 1933 he served in China and then from 1936 - 37 served in India, where he was invalided. Daniel became a specialist in surgery. He was a Fellow of the Royal Society of Medicine and a Member of the British Medical Association. He was also employed as Resident Honorable Physician at “dreadnought” Hospital at Greenwich, and as Resident Honorable Surgeon at the Royal Infirmary, Edinburgh. He died in the Queen Alexandra Hospital, Milbank, London.
