Biographical Notes

Mentioned in Watson Report:

“He supported, without complaint, a badly wounded marine for 48 hours. In order to do this he was immersed to the shoulders for a prolonged period and must have suffered acute discomfort. The wounded man eventually died. Sergeant King’s patience and care were a valuable example at a time when the patience of others was wearing a little thin due to the hardship all were suffering.”
