The 1945 BAUS Annual Scientific Meeting took place from 28 to 29 June 1945 at the Royal College of Surgeons of England, Lincoln's Inn Fields, London.
The College had largely been destroyed by German bombing in May 1941 (pictured upper right) and a complete rebuild was required. This reconstruction was completed by the end of the Second World War. The College remained unchanged until 2017 when it closed again for a complete rebuild and refurbishment.

Following the presentation, members and their guests attended a dinner at the Royal College of Surgeons of England by kind permission of the President and Council.
The Annual General Meeting (agenda shown in the programme above) was held on 29 June and was followed by a visit to the Spinal Injury Centre at Stoke Mandeville Hospital (pictured lower right), Aylesbury (by kind permission of Maj Gen HH Blake OBE).
