Memorable Manitobans: Richard Edward Alleyn (1897-1931)

Physician.

Born at Carberry, Manitoba on 21 April 1897, son of banker Richard Alleyn, he moved to Morden with his parents at the age of 11, where he attended high school. In 1915, he enlisted in the Canadian Expeditionary Force and went overseas with the 10th Field Ambulance. He was decorated with the Military Medal for conspicuous service in the field. After the war he returned to Manitoba and studied medicine at the University of Manitoba, graduating in 1924. The next year he took a postgraduate course at Vienna and played on a hockey team led by Dr. Blake Watson. He was an active member of the Winnipeg Flying Club. He died in a plane crash near Bagot, Manitoba on 20 February 1931.
