Biographical entry Peel, Clifford
- Medical student
Clifford Peel, a Victorian medical student, suggested to the Reverend John Flynn (qv), then superintendent of the Australian Inland Mission, that aerial ambulances would solve the problem of providing rapid medical services to the outback (1917). Peel, a member of the Australian Flying Corps, was killed in France before his ideas were realised.
