Obituary published in the British Medical Journal 25 April 1953 Page 943

After a prolonged illness contracted on service and borne with great cheerfulness and fortitude, Colonel R. W. VINT died on March 2 at the age of 65.

Robert Washington Vint was born at Carrickfergus, Co. Antrim, on July 4, 1887, a twin son of the late Mr. John Vint, and was educated at the Royal Belfast Academical Institution, matriculating at the former Royal University of Ireland, and later studying medicine at the old Queen's College, Belfast, where he was a keen player of Rugby football.

After graduating M.B., B.Ch. in 1910 he served as house-surgeon at the Maternity Hospital, Belfast, and later as house-surgeon and housephysician at the Royal Victoria Hospital.

He entered the R.A.M.C. by competitive examination in 1912, and was in India when war broke out in 1914.

He then served with a field ambulance in Mesopotamia and Persia, gaining considerable surgical experience.

After the war he served in the United Kingdom, Malta, and India, chiefly as a surgical specialist, and wherever he went he was universally popular.

During the last war he was in command of a large hospital in India, and later became A.D.M.S., Waziristan District, North-west Frontier Province, and an Honorary Surgeon to the Viceroy of India.

On reaching the age of retirement he was re-employed to command a large tuberculosis hospital in the Indian hills, and he finally retired in 1947.

Colonel Vint is survived by his wife and one son.

His death will be deeply felt by a multitude of friends in many parts of the world.
