Letter in DAWN:
Sunday’s column informs that Karachiâ€™s oldest government Richmond Crawford Veterinary Hospital on M.A. Jinnah Road is soon to disappear. The service book of my grandfather, Khan Bahadur Dr S.G. Haji, has entries that he was “veterinary officer” at this hospital from May 4, 1892 to May 15, 1912. He retired as deputy superintendent, Veterinary Department of Sinds, Balochistan and Rajputana on Aug 3, 1922 and died in London on Dec 7, 1924. The service book of my father, Dr C.S.G. Haji, has entries that he was “Acting In charge” in this hospital on May 14, 1912 and “veterinary surgeon” on Feb 1, 1924 when he was promoted as “veterinary inspector”.
