Shared Note

Another letter from Penelope
Note about my father Harry Mark Palmer, always known as Mark: 1889 - 1943 Born Totland bay, Isle of Wight. 2nd of 4 sons George, Mark, Ralph and Hugh. Their parents George Palmer and Dorothia Palmer nee Wickham. HMP's grandfather has George, elder brother a Charles Mark. They were 2 of the partners in Palmers Shipyard, Jarrow. George ? left the firm to him and his wife Annie and 3 children: Annie Maria ‎(Minnie)‎ and George lived at Divley in the Meon Valley in Harpshire. George and Dorothea went to New Zealand in 1891. They brought laod at Tararafi on the ? want a the north island ? by ret Toraraki
HMP has the ???? England. He came in 1914 to ? medicine. Although he was exempted for military service due to ? of the heart left after Rheumatic Fever ‎(which all 4 brothers had)‎. HMP persuaded the RAMC ‎(Royal Airforce Medical Core?)‎ to have him. In 1916 he was transferred to the RNVR ‎( Royal Navy Voluntary Reserves?)‎. The heart condition dogged him all his life but he was en? Dedicated to medicine and his astonishingly positive attitude enabled him eventually to qualify at St Thomas's Hospital to become a doctor and later a psychiatrist also. The latter was his great work.
Once in the RNUR he became a coding officer on HMS Victorious patrolling up to the Arctic from Liverpool. Coding was reserved for those declared "unfit"… Eventually the extreme cold caused a heart attack.. and ? months later he was invalided out. He was able then to take up his medical ? at last. And in 1917 went to Gonville and Caived college, Cambridge and later St Thomas's.
In 1929 he married Leslie Williams. Their families were friends in New Zealand and Leslie came to England ? ? I was born in 1932, their only child.
This is enough ? ? ? for the letter I'm photocopying for you. X Pen
