  • Notes 
    • While living in Assam, Kenya, he would sometimes accompany (as expedition doctor) his friend George A. Nevill, who was with the police as political officer and would often made excursions into the Himalayas on punitive or other reasons. It is thought that one of these expeditions reached Lhasa.

      "On the friendly expeditions, a wind up gramaphone with trumpet was carried. Frightened villagers would hide when the caravan arrived in town. The gramaphone would be placed in the village center and a record played. Curiosity would then bring out the villagers and my dad would treat people who looked as if they needed it. Unfortunately, although I have a box of photographs my dad rarely bothered to write dates or places on the back." - Rupert Jameson.
