Mission and Dedication

Dedication

We at Advanced Orthodyanamcis dedicate our efforts to the memory and spirit of two remarkable medical professionals in the Bapty family. We strive to continue their tradition of caring and service.

Captain Dr. Leonard Bapty M.D. F.R.C.S. (C)

Leonard Bapty
Leonard Bapty

Born in Victoria, BC in 1912, Leonard graduated from the University of Aberdeen Medical School in 1936.  When war broke out in 1939, he joined the 186th Field Ambulance RAMC which was forced out of France in the retreat from Dunkirk. 

He then joined the 1st Battalion Royal Sussex Regiment, which saw action in Africa.  For his tireless dedication to the wounded during the attack on Tobruk, Leonard was awarded the Military Cross.

Less than a month later his right arm was badly wounded by shapnell, and the next eight years saw him undergo a series of bone grafts.  Although his right arm was never the same again, he obtained his Canadian FRCS in surgery and orthopedics.  He enjoyed a busy practice in his native Victoria, raised a family and ran a dairy farm.  Leonard died at his home in 1983.

Colonel Dr. Walter Bapty M.D.

Walter Bapty

Walter was born in 1884 in London, ON.  Lying about his age, he joined the Canadian forces in 1900 and fought in the Boer War under Lieutenant John McCrae.  Upon his return home, he decided to enter Medical School at Western in London graduating in 1906.  Walter found himself lured to the excitement of going west, finally settling in Victoria and established his practice.

He saw service in World War I, where he was shot in the neck by a sniper.  After recovering, he was transferred to the Canadian Army Medical Corps and cared for the wounded after the Battle of Vimy Ridge, Hill 70 and Passchendale.

Walter returned to his practice in Victoria, but the army never really left him.  He served as medical officer of the 1st Battalion, Canadian Scottish Regiment, and later took command of the 2nd Battalion, a post he held until July 1939 and resumed in June 1940. Until his death in 1973 he remained involved in the military field by giving addresses and lectures on modern developments in warfare, the Scottish regiments, discipline and leadership, Pacific problems during World War II, and the objectives of military training.
