(British Medical Journal 1 April 1916)

'R. F. Hebbert will be best remembered by the masters and his contemporaries as a boy with a pleasant charm of manner and quiet earnest disposition. His taste turned to a medical profession, and he left rather early before he had attained as high a position in the School as his character and ability would have raised him. He died on active service in Mesopotamia.' (Malvernian, Jun 1916).
