Institutions mentioned:


    A spoof review of 'Punch's Outlines of Military Surgery', a work notable for its discussion of branding those who disgrace 'an honourable profession', and of 'corporal and capital punishment'. Adds that army surgeons should learn clinical medicine in the 'school of [the hangman] Jack Ketch', and that they have now been 'allotted' a 'D' tattoo.
