Harold Sugden Rudduck

M, #11149, b. 8 Sep 1873, d. 8 May 1964
Birth*8 Sep 1873 Westbury W, Wiltshire, England, Dec Q [Westbury W] 5a 136.1 
Military*c 1900Enlisted for military service: Boer war from Northcote/Darebin: RUDDUCK, Harold Sugden Veterinary Captain, 2nd Victorian Mounted Rifles. A veterinary surgeon from Heidelberg, son of Rev. J. S. Rudduck of the Congregationalist Church, Darebin Street, Northcote. Prior to volunteering, he was a resident surgeon at the Melbourne Veterinary Hospital before establishing his own practice at Tattersall's Horse Bazaar in Exhibition Street.
Rudduck served as Chief Veterinary Officer for the Second Mounted Infantry under General Alderson and rather than returning to Australia with the unit in October, 1900, he remained in South Africa and became Officer in Charge of the Veterinary Hospital in Pretoria.
Just when he returned to Australia is uncertain; there are notes that he was released from a London hospital in late April, 1901 and therefore he must have returned by commercial shipping, but just when is unknown. One brief article on his service suggests that he had some 2,000 horses directly under his care. His mother was listed as dying in June, 1900 while Rudduck was serving in South Africa.
He was a regular contributor to both the Collingwood-based Mercury and Weekly Courier and the Evelyn Observer which extended through Heidelberg and the Diamond Valley, but none of his letters ever appeared in the Leader:=
LETTERS FROM THE CAPE
"The hollowing despatch has been received from Veterinary Captain Rudduck":-
""3.2.1900 We sighted South Africa this morning and are now running at a good speed. I have had a very trying time with the horses-the influenza affected pretty well every second horse. Two have died and it seems jolly hard luck to lose them when in sight of South Africa … we had a lively time from the vaccination, our arms were bad; I never saw such remarkable effects before ... the waiters on board are all blacks and we call them '"Boy" with the exception of the head man, who is called "Butler". Some of these "Boys" are old enough to be our parents, but it makes no difference. As regards the officers of the boat, one could not meet a finer lot of fellows. The captain is one of the best men I have ever met. When the rush of sickness through vaccination came on, he gave up his own cabin and went into the chart room. The officers of the contingent attend church every Sunday in full dress, including swords. TABLE BAY , Capetown
Rudduck, by then married, also enlisted for World War 1 in May, 1916 at just on 43 years of age and living in Beaconsfield, although he still appears to have a veterinary practice in Melbourne. His appears to have been a specialised recruitment - he was appointed Captain for the voyage of a horse transport to Egypt leaving Sydney on 11 May and he returned in August with his appointment terminated, but he was re-appointed Captain for second voyage in September before being discharged permanently in December.2

Australian Dictionary of Biography

Harold Sugden Rudduck (1873-1964), veterinary surgeon, was born on 8 September 1873 at Westbury, Wiltshire, England, son of Rev. Joseph Benjamin Rudduck, Congregational pastor, and his wife Hannah Jane, née Hudson. He attended Mill Hill school until the family migrated to Victoria, where he was educated at Melbourne Church of England Grammar School from 1887. After completing a diploma of agriculture at Longerenong Agricultural College (1889-90) he won a scholarship to the Melbourne Veterinary College where he graduated with honours in 1894 and worked as assistant to W. T. Kendall.
From 1895 Rudduck had his own practice in Bourke Street, Melbourne, lectured at Dookie Agricultural College and the Working Men's College, acted as adviser to the Melbourne City Council, was veterinarian to the Williamstown Racing Club, and held the position of meat inspector for the Brighton Town Council. In this period he began supplying farmers with the 'Stock Medicine Chest', the production and sale of which was to be a basic part of his later business.
Rudduck enlisted for the South African War in the 2nd Contingent of the Victorian Mounted Rifles in 1900 with the rank of veterinary captain. He was second in charge at the veterinary hospital in Pretoria when he was asked to form and command the Pietersburg Veterinary Field Hospital. On 15 March 1902 he married his cousin Edith May Durkin (d.1951) at Woodham Mortimer, Essex, England, with Anglican rites. He completed diplomas from King's College, London, and the (Royal) Sanitary Institute, West Kensington, and before returning to his practice in Australia toured Europe and North America visiting veterinary and bacteriological establishments. A reserve officer, he was recalled to active service in Egypt in 1915, and helped to organize the sea transport of horses.
A regular contributor to the Australasian and Australian Farm and Home, Rudduck published his popular book, The Diseases of Australian Stock, in 1905. In 1923 he set up a dispensary in Lonsdale Street, Melbourne, and manufactured patent medicines and veterinary surgical instruments. Here he produced the first vaccine for pulpy kidney and contagious abortion. He had developed a thriving business with a network of travellers in south-eastern Australia. In 1929 he established Rudduck & Co. Pty Ltd for himself and his five sons, one of whom became 'Uncle Peter' the radio vet. The bacteriological testing and the manufacture of veterinary medicines was taken over by Rudduck Serum Laboratories Pty Ltd in 1939 with a paid up capital of £5. At the same time an animal hospital was opened at Moorabbin, 'the largest in the southern hemisphere'.
Rudduck, who had a lifelong interest in the improvement of breeding stock, ran a Guernsey herd at Lilydale, gradually adding an Aberdeen Angus herd and several pedigree flocks. This work, though characterized by enquiry and experiment, never reached its full potential.
Edith Rudduck had returned to England in the 1920s with two sons and after her death Rudduck married Constance Alice Jean Noonan on 12 June 1951. He had moved to Narbethong, but retained ultimate control of his businesses until his death at Bentleigh on 8 May 1964; he was cremated. His wife and five sons of his first marriage survived him. An upright figure with white hair, firmly but quietly spoken, Rudduck had a sense of humour, evidenced by his use of an eponymous trade mark, the red duck. His role as a journalist and his use of patent medicines sometimes brought him into conflict with professional veterinary opinion, but made him popular with working farmers, breeders and small pet owners.13
