George Langdon Faull (BVSc 1940) died ending a respected career as an Equine practitioner.
His contribution to the thoroughbred stud & racing practice was extensive and by the 1960’s he had become a mentor to his younger colleagues & was recognized as the doyen of Equine practitioners of the time.
In 1945 he relocated to Cape Town where he developed a companion animal and equine racing practice attending to many of the thoroughbred studs in the Western Cape as far afield as Beaufort West.
Surgery was his first love and he became known for a speciality in the repair of recto-vaginal lacerations &
fistulas in broodmares.
He was external examiner in surgery at Onderstepoort for many years.
In the words of Edmund Nelson, George Faull was not only a splendid example to all veterinarians, but also to all who knew him.
His complete dedication to his work and his expertise in the field of veterinary science instilled great confidence in those privileged to have had his services.
Like many great men, he displayed humanity, a characteristic that endeared him to all who came in contact with him.
