Abstract

Surgeon-General Suzuki of the Japanese Navy, in his address1 last week before the Fourteenth Annual Association of Military Surgeons of the United States told of two customs that were introduced into the Japanese navy during the recent war, which were of extreme interest and likely to be far-reaching in their influence, because they are simple and, as a rule, possible. It is no wonder that a distinguished medical authority in the United States Navy is reported to have said in comment that the Japanese surgeon-general had made perhaps the most valuable contribution of modern times to naval surgery. The suggestions that were carried into effect under his directions, however, are so obvious that it is rather difficult to understand how they did not occur to martial surgeons before this. Although the suddenness of the attack would often prevent their use in land engagements, naval combatants usually have sufficient warning
